Internality (14)

You know about so much, 
But what about 
The lost shadows of desire 

Fading into forests 
Overgrown with the mundane cares 
That choke-out life? 

Did any of your studies 
Tell you why 
Yearning grows in rocky soil 

Or even why 
Songs and smells live longer 
Than our rationality?
