    I am that goal you just can't reach

    I am the willing student you aren't willing to teach

    I am the vanity you treasure in your heart

    I am your lost and broken part

    I am the water mirage in the heat that isn't real

    I am the substance of every emotion you can not feel

    I am the bittersweet taste of every beverage you drink

    I am the contradiction to all the thoughts that you think

    I am the moon- when it does not rise

    I am the tears residing in your eyes

    I am the laughter to a contagious joke

    I am the warmness you find in your coat

    I am the smile when I should be the tears

    I am your heart's beat when its thumping in fears

    I am what's killing the satisfaction of everything you do

    I am me but I live in you

    I am your lost and broken part ...
    I am the substance of every emotion you can not feel ...

    i loved this piece but i have one question, what do we call this feeling that seems to strike us at the most inopportune time...your inspiration speaks volumes so never hesitate to write....
