for things that can never be
for my heart to finally see
need not lead only to pain
is merely inspiration with another name
for temptation need not be acted on,
and frustration can be channeled into other things;
waiting can become an exercise in zen,
and longing for something I can never have
is better than having no interest in life again;
at least it gives me something to feel.
