side effects

the side effects
of getting
exactly what you want
can be worse
than the symptoms
suffered before

when your dreams
are intangible
it doesn’t feel
so lonesome
when they do not
come true

but knowing
they are within reach
causes the desperation
to become palpable
impossible to handle
the crushing weightof waiting
