Found Poem: Lost

Desire can feel
obviously neurotic.
Emerging out of emptiness
we look for that void –
at least, temporarily.

Not so much for things,
you should arise
out of the way
to fear.

It is an energy drained away
by a deep, indulging
state of mind
nakedly exposed.

Deeper, truer, within yourself
by virtue of truly feeling lost.

(Ref: “Staying with Boredom” by Sangharakshita – Tricycle Magazine, Summer 2013, pg 16)
