You know when you pass
by a pastry shop
and in the shop-window
there is the dessert you love?
You are hungry
and you want to eat it.
You can already taste the aroma,
its unique and special cream,
the magic moment
of the first
longed-for bite,
the pleasure
of slowly savouring it,
the satisfaction it leaves you.
Then you go inside
and they tell you that the only slice left
cannot be sold.
You know that sensation you feel
and that doesn't leave you?
It's the same
when I think of you
and I can't have you.
