MLA CITATIONS AHHHHHHHH
There is a time in everybody’s life where there is something, whether it is an object, a person, or an idea, that they absolutely crave for. It might be obtainable. It might not be. It could be something that is completely impossible, such as buying a unicorn with affordable unicorn insurance, or maybe it’s that one really hot chick that you’ve never really talked to but you still kind of know because you walk by her at the same place every morning, and then you eventually change your route in the morning because that guy that is always with her that you always thought was her brother or something was actually her boyfriend. Whatever it is, there’s always something that somebody hungers for. Anything can be lusted after, and thus, “lust” does not have one straight, clear definition.
For instance, just before I started writing this paper, I got this huge urge to eat some pie. I don’t even like pie all that much, but it sounds really good right about now. While I may want some right now, the craving will pass pretty quickly. Something such as this, I do not find to be lust. For something to be lust, the want for whatever object has to be intense. The desire for that object is so intense, that the person will think about it constantly, sometimes for very long periods of time. The desire will be so great that it might even border on obsession. Ergo, lust and obsession are very closely related, and sometimes can overlap and be considered to be the same thing.
When the word “lust” is said out loud, it usually triggers the vast majority of people’s minds to immediately think of sex or some kind of forbidden love thing. For reasons unknown, when I hear it, I immediately think of the movie “The Mask of Zorro”. While lust may be associated with sex the majority of the time, it can also pertain to greed or other obsessions.
Some people lust for multiple different things all at once. For an example of all of these, look at Kurtz in the book Heart of Darkness. His lust knew no bounds. From ivory, to money, to destruction, it all became something that he desired. His lust was insatiable. No matter how much he had, he was always devising childish plans on how to get more ivory, how to get more money.
Lust can even lead to madness. A person’s mind can be completely dominated by thoughts of lust. With
