Have you ever felt so close to reaching something, but then see it slip right past you?

Say, catching a fish, or winning a lottery, or meeting the person you thought could be your life partner - your Mr. or Mrs Right?

How do you feel then?

always....
so many times....
like a handful of sand slipping away between my fingers

that I almost get used to it...and now I'm addicted to the feeling to "very close but never reach" it's beautiful don't you think? ...feels like....a pleasing dream that you have to wake up, and a nice rose with thorns you can't take away, like you finished a castle of sands and witness your work totally collapsed...hurtful and beautiful....coz perfectness never exist  :)

Very nicely said, Superkylin!

I also understand that sometimes I should just let things be, that getting and reaching things is not all about what life should be. After all, things exist for themselves, not for me.

But I do feel melancholic, having to watch things happening from a distance, and not taking part. Would I have changed them had I been part of them, or have myself changed?

Melancholic, do you know the Chinese poet Xu Zhi Mo once translated this difficult word into "Mo Leng Gu Lei" (眸冷骨累 eyes cold, bones sore).

That's how I feel at the moment!
