A delicacy you wish to achieve
Fanciful colors swirling
Creating fireworks of flavors that dance on the taste buds
It’s so close yet so far
Everyone around can but you cannot
They laugh and sing
Faces flushed shades of pink to red

It makes you sad
The feeling of emptiness encases you
It’s unfair
Your arm stretches so far and yet
Not close enough

As time is wasted and the goal is near
Your fingers grow longer and graze what you seek
A taste of the nectar is what the deities have given

Yet this sucks
Why do people make it such a big deal?
