Yearning

What is about humans and the constant yearning?

I love that song Just My Imagination. You know the one. The Temptations. Re-done by Gwyneth Paltrow and Babyface in the late nineties. 
It reminds me of how, no longer how content I am with myself or that day or the time I'm having, I'm always yearning for something else. And it's a deep yearning. Reminiscent of an impressionable teen, half heartbroken with premature conviction that it will never be.

Why all the melodrama?

What is it with humans and their propensity to desire even unknown things? Things we haven't even fathomed yet?

Today when it came, I allowed it fill my chest and then after a time, it started to leech back out of my pores.

Even as I said bye, I couldn't understand why.
