The thin line

I see it right there
The object of my desire
Perfect, beautiful, made to order
Just for me
I know it fits
in a way nothing else would
The high, 
a simple thought gives me, 
unattainable any other way
It makes me run
full speed
all in pursuit
of picture perfection

A familiar breeze makes me pause
and I look back at what was then,
a greener pasture,
now too familiar to be exciting

Knowing how familiarity 
would lead to boredom,
I pause
framing my perfection
as an ideal to attain
some other day..
an object to desire
every moment
an object to long for
just to feel alive..
