It’s so untouchable.
Something I could want so badly, if circumstances were different.
But even then, something I shouldn’t want.
It’s so hard to walk by and see it and know I can’t have it.
Dreams about it; hours spent thinking about all the possibilities with and without it.
If I touch it, how many people will feel the effect?
How many lives will change because of this longing?
But it’s so beautiful, so enticing.
Life with it – laborious but wonderful.
Life without it – real and true.
And every time I look at it, I know it’s unreal.
