☆ desire 願望
“Desire” is a strong wish to do or have something. In English, we also have the word “wish” which is similar in meaning, but the two words are a little different in nuance. The word “desire” is always used when there is a feeling of longing or craving something, whereas “wish” is usually used when there is a hopeful feeling.
In most cases, you can use either, but if there is a longing feeling (a slightly sad feeling, almost like you think there is no change you will get the desire) then you would use “desire”. Basically, “wish” is more hopeful than “desire.”
