Desire is an internal and a relatively pulsional need, i.e. a subjective necessity.
It can be more or less internalized and pulsional, from desire in its strictest meaning to will or volition.
The verbal construction "verb-GI KEL-", i.e. the verb suffixed by the affix GI plus the possessive type of personal suffix
followed by the verb kel- ('to come'), is one of the forms used to express pure desire.
The verb kel- is in general used in the focal present or past (forms in -YAP or -YOTGAN EDI), or in the definite past (form in -DI).
Other forms are also possible.
In the focal forms, to express the current coming of desire:

The verbal construction "verb-ISHNI ISTA- (or XOHLA-)", i.e. the infinitive in the accusative followed by the verb ista- ('to want')
or xohla- (same meaning).
