    Is This My Life?

    Out Of Reach

    I'm not an unrealistic person ... in fact I'd consider myself pretty level headed and sensible.But there are one or two things that I want right now that I can't have.  No matter how much I tell myself they are unattainable it doesn't stop me wanting them. It's stupid and...
