Fire

We started together, yet
They went ahead of me
One after another, and
I stayed far behind
Hoping they will slow down
For me someday,
Yet they did not-
Even when the sun was setting in
And it was time to return home.

Desire scorched them
They were still in pursuit for more,
Not satisfying, but
Aggravating the want deep within;
I could only stand motionless,
Far behind
Wondering, if I have ever
Fed a fire in me without knowing.

I would like to know what you think about this :
