It's a feeling
  A longing
    A wanting
It's something you feel you need
Something you need to feel complete
To fill the hole
To fulfill your soul
It's perfect
Your every dream
Your soul desire
It is flesh
It is mind
Something you knew you'd eventually find
You know it's there
But yet, it's not yours
And it may never be
It's on a different level
A higher level
One you cannot reach
You can almost touch it with the tip of your fingers, but only if standing on the very tip of your toes, and once your fingertips brush it ever so lightly your legs give out and you fall back onto where you started from...


Back to reality
And even though you know you may never have it
To hold
To touch
It's something you know you'll always desire
Forever
So much

wow, I am still left wondering what this thing is. It could be many things. The fact that it leaves you dangling is what makes this poem great. Welcome to passions.

Peaches~
Welcome to the family of Passionate Poets.
Your poem reminded me of
'reaching for a star' .. which should
always be our goal.  Even if we only
'brush it with our fingertips'
it lifts our spirit to try again.

Nicely done.
