There's always something that we'll want.
Possibly something we've forgot.
Happiness dangling by a thread.
One thing in all called dread.
We deflat under the frightening words of no.
Huddle against ourselves burrowing beneath the snow.
Crying out in a shuddered heap.
All because of the thing we can't keep.

    It's my own little secret, haha. But no, really all I did was have an urge to write something and the words just filled my mind

    Want what we can't have. Have what we never wanted. This is deep. Great job.
