Perceived Desires of the Heart

Here I am, the little stick man. I want something… a thing, a relationship, more money, more power, more attention. I sense it, and maybe even see it, but can’t reach it. It is not in my power to get it. Yet I grasp for it, trying to make it happen. These are the perceived desires of the heart. I know what they are and sometimes they even blind me to other things.
