I've got this burning, burning Yearning feelin' inside me Ooh, deep inside me And it hurts so bad.
You came into my heart so tenderly with a burning love that stings like a bee.

Yearning is not often understood as a Force of Darkness. Particularly desires for a better future are often rationalised as being positive motivators.
But while a deep yearning can really burn and hurt inside, even the smallest yearning will ache inside and take away so many if not all of the pleasures the present moment can bring and give.
