Catch Me If You Can

The Pursuit of Excellence

Catch me if you can

Give in to temptation and lament your desperation for release

Does it hurt

Or is there pleasure you derive in knowing I will never leave you

For even though, you give me life

I will never permit you more than a fleeting taste

I would slowly wither, grow old and die

How can I compete with the pleasures of this world

Even if it was I, who gave them to you

I care for you more than you know

Chase me mortal man, but never catch me

And our love will last forever
