Have you ever waited for something that would never come? Ever. She made me come here twice in vain. Imagine this. You are having the best dream you have ever had, you are chasing this motherfucker jumping over fences and sprinklers, you can almost feel his neck between your teeth and just a moment before you would catch him, ding-ding… you hear this unimaginably beautiful sound. Jingling and crystal clear. You know it’s time. You can’t control yourself, you have to go. And there she stands in all her glory, but she just wants to play again. For god’s sake, throw it. Here I am, I’m yours, just do it, please. Why is she doing this to me? And I keep falling for it over and over again. I can’t help it, I love her. The way she stands, the way she stares, the way she smiles. She must be god and she is mine. [András Gál]
