#OctPoWriMo entry #6 — Tantalizing


Tantalizing temptations show a future
that will never materialize
A desirable object that will always
be just out of reach
Promising to quench your thirst, but
leaving you forever parched
Offering delicious fruits that
can never be harvested
Don’t seek the tantalizing,
it is a cruel mirage
Look for the achievable, the attainable,
rewards that can be verified
Or suffer the fate of Tantalus,
forever tormented by goals beyond his grasp
