there's a funny thing about fantasies
we have this little pedestal
on which
the shiny things that attract our attention
never lose their luster
but once
the condo
the car
the person
(insert object-of-desire here)
is acquired
it's removed from its shelf
and either gently placed
or hucked over the shoulder without so much as a sidelong glance
into the memory bin
where everything fades.

it's only when you see the shiny thing up close that you notice the scratches.

nothing is ever as amazing as our imaginations can create. and once we realize that said-object/person is not at all what we imagined them to be, then we get hurt, which in turn can hurt that which we were fantasizing about [if they are capable of emotion, that is].

so does that mean we stop dreaming and fantasizing of what we want because ultimately we will be let down?

if one acquires desired objective, they will be disappointed that it was not a replica of what was created in their mind.

but one will still be hurt if they don't acquire what they wanted- because there will always be the what-if's or could-have-beens.

what to do?
