Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Shiny

I told you
that I am philosophical
about desire

There are many things
that I have wanted
that I will never have

and there are also
many people
I could say the same thing
about

I have never
been spoiled
by the universe
into believing
I will get
everything
just by wishing for it

or that some things
will even be mine
after pining
and urgent toil

That is…
okay

No
it’s really not

But it teaches me
something
about myself
and the nature
of my desires
it teaches me
something
about the objects
of my desires
it teaches me
not to rely
on my desires

because they often
only reflect
a twinkling urge
rather than
a glowing need

and everyone knows
those stars we see
are not there
anymore
no matter that
we wish upon them
sparkling
unreachable
shiny
