Things of Limbo (Catch 22 in Chains)

I want things I can’t have;

Things that are more than physical,

more than emotional,

more than possible.

I want things I know I deserve

things so easily attainable

I’ve convinced myself they’re only

future dreams.

Dreams that I’ll try to step up to

but instead place aside

[with] other things I’ll get to

dull with memory, and dusty with time.

Seems I caught my Catch 22

and wrapped it up in chains.

But it got in my things and now they’re unfree too;

Peace and harmony, happiness and balance –

tied up – limbo of circumstance…

Maybe.

And now I want the things I can have

–  but don’t.
