I got what I wanted, just like I planned…and it was wonderful, and I was happy

 

For a minute—for a while; it didn’t rub off, nor dissolve at my wandering touch

 

It lasted—outlasted the dawn; a few days came and went, then had gone

 

By and by, I grew bored and remiss; I found the thing I had wanted…was not what I wished

 

It was the finest of greed that took all away, that left me all rotten, alone to decay

 

Fermented dreams muddle my thoughts, as reflexive thirst dries out my tongue

 

Dissatisfaction ruins contentment; illusory longings impregnate my heart , exhaust my senses, and spoil me for good

 

I got what I wanted, just as I’d schemed in a singular moment of the oddest determination…

 

And I thought it well deserved, and I was so affected by the laudanum of my elation and pride

 

It lasted until the novelty wore off, and the substantial feeling in my chest turned to weariness in my veins

 

There was no reawakening the thrill; there was no recapturing my interests

 

I got what I wanted, and it was all the same…

 

I got what I wanted, but then my mind was changed…
