Need. Want. Crave.

Yearn. Long. Sehnsucht.
The experience is one of intense longing...This hunger is better than any other fullness; this poverty better than all other wealth. And thus it comes about, that if the desire is long absent, it may itself be desired, and that new desiring becomes a new instance of the original desire...The human soul was made to enjoy some object that is never fully given - nay, cannot even be imagined as given - in our present mode of subjective and spatio-temporal experience. --C.S. Lewis

Some days, you want to be focused, but someone says something to you that gets in your head and pushes all the other stuff out. I can't write today. Just thinking about desire and longing and our need for it, in both directions.

Do you know what I mean?

If you don't (or if you do), here's the soundtrack to illustrate.
