Fascinating journey through my mind

The fire of desire.

Reason,
Self-esteem,
Purpose.
Lost all of them,
in a dream.
Up into the clouds,
it lifts me.
Then abruptly,
drops me.
Is getting hurt,
a pastime?
A sin,
committed by whom?
Optimism and hope,
are they sins?
Am I a sinner?
Yes, I am.
The fire of desire
will burn forever.
Engulfing me,
the sinner.

Nas, Thank you. I am getting flattered :D Please be sure that whether they are sins or not, there is no life without them. They are the forces which keep us alive.

Are you a christian by any chance? Your style of writing reminds me of an ad for Toyota cars!

Which ad? I am not a christian :) I am an Atheist.
