Longing for shallowness

You feel you must let life run its course,
Yet you don't.
You wish for things out of your reach,
You want it all, 
Certain of its impossibility.

You step away,
You draw a distance,
You make promises to yourself,
And you immediately break them. 

You know beneath beauty,
There is darkness,
There is pain.
You recognize the vanity,
The shallowness. 

Still,
You long for it,
You insist.
Still,
You look for it,
You reach out.

You hurt,
You are consumed.
A lump in the throat.
A tightening of the heart.

No more, no more,
You silently scream.
Until you find yourself,
There,
Again.
