Its just out of reach ,
the sparkling water ,
the juicy peach .

Will it be forever ? ,
this agony ,
of having the things i need most ,
dangled in front of me .

and i always find ,
in the back of my mind ,
the question...
"what if this is as good as it gets" .

foolish question , i know it is
so maybe ill learn not to love
the things , just beyond my reach .


 "all i wanna be , is washed out by the sea"

Nice poem! Things always just out of reach can't bring happiness. Learning to be content with whatever you have can!

honey....I hate that you are still feeling so bad - especially when things seemed to be looking up for you....
as I have said before, please don't hesitate to give me a shout if you need me, i'm crap at advice but I'm a good listener.
see you soon.....

Cabe,
the fruit has realy bloomed for you, seems you kept reaching for long enough that it paid of and the sweatness of life has just fallen in to your hand . Hope it all goes well with Jamie .

I agree with dsnyder, if you learn to be content with what you have, life does become better and it's easier to find what you want.  Great poem - remember life (or you poetry) is not "as good as it gets".  I think you have potential.  Not that you're not good already.

Funny how we always want the things we can not have isn't it?
