You aimed for it A thousand times And always bloody miss. You tell your hopeful self It’s fine, it’s fine Tomorrow’s another shot at it. Whoever thought it easy Could only be delusional. This diet goal is crazy, A dream that fades away – The kind of new beginning That just restarts each day.
It appeared like a star In a very dark night. It promised like a god That you will be all right. It lured you like a temptress To a place you’ve never been. It stirred you to a restlessness Such as one you’ve never seen. It warmed you up to a vision Where you live your heart’s desires. It then left you disillusioned When it vanished as you caught fire.
