Dave!You know when there's something you really want

But you know you can never have it

So you do everything you can to put it out of your head

But deep down you still want it

And the thought of it burns in your brain so you can't think

And the ache of it sits heavy in your heart so you can't feel

And the longing of it crushes your chest so you can't breathe

But there's nothing you can do to make it go away

So it consumes your every waking thought

And it envelopes your every sleeping dream

It becomes your life

But to acknowledge that would destroy you

So you tell yourself that you don't really want it after all

When you know that you really do

But you can't

So you won't

But you do

And so

You allow yourself to hope

And every day you feel a little more lost because the hope keeps slipping away

And one day you wake up and don't know who you are because the hope has gone

And then you find yourself lost, confused, and alone

But still wanting?




I knew I should have bought that Statue of Liberty Brass Coat Rack when I was in New York.

  1. Sarah says:

    You totally should have. Never ignore the impulse buy!

  2. Rebecca says:

    You just perfectly described years of longing to move to Chicago. Longing that has recently been intensified by a man named Wolf who lives there of whom every love and heartache song were written. Would that a coat rack would make every day living in Seattle with a bed half empty more palatable.

    In the meantime, time keeps on ticking into the future. One where you start a match profile, buy a body pillow, and count the raindrops.

  3. Finn says:

    This isn’t really about a coat rack, is it? It’s about Betty White. 😉

  4. Poppy says:

    I definitely have had this feeling before. But it wasn’t for a coat rack. I think it might have been for someone’s garden.

  5. Lisa says:

    Yes. I know this feeling all too well. And then he died and it turned out to be true that I could never, ever have it.

  6. You passed up a Statue of Liberty Brass Coat Rack? Who does that?

  7. Sybil Law says:

    Oh now *I* want it, too!!!
    Also this makes me think of that damned $80 French ink drawing in an antique shop years (about 18 years) ago. I should have freaking bought it. I am still so angry that I didn’t!!!

  8. Avitable says:

    I know! I should have ordered something different that one time we ate at Rainforest Cafe.

    I’ll regret it until my dying day.

  9. Hilly Sue says:

    Phew, you almost sounded like a romantic there for a minute, Davey Joe! 😉
