Am I to so quickly lose that which was nearly within grasp but two weeks hence?
Am I to be promised everything I wanted and more, only to have it ripped from my heart?
Am I to never experience the whispered promises of the only woman I still trust?
Am I to give away my fragile heart once more, only to have it dashed upon the rocks and broken forever?
Am I to put every ounce of my hope and trust in that which will not be?
Am I to cavalierly fling aside my entire world to grasp something that is no longer there?
Am I to look sorrowfully on as every hope, dream, plan, and desire of my life is put to ruin?
Am I to lose my entire future to the past of another?
Am I to reach for happiness, yet watch as it slips between my fingers?
Desiring many things divides a person's attention between desires... and thus, the person is more ready or willing to let those desires fade with the passing of time and the turning of the hourglass. But when one lets all those petty wants fall away for the one desire that person feels most strongly... they invest more of themself into that one desire. Some invest even their very souls in their single desire...
...do you think that it's possible for one whose desire encompasses even his soul to die simply, merely from having his desire once and for all denied him?
