I have a collection.
The plastic, glass, metal, wood, leather, rubber, fabric all stare back at me.
I own them.
I can touch them.
I polish them.
I devote my time to take good care of them.
Then, I don’t have to say goodbye.
Happiness is in the owning.
Happiness is in the controlling.
Happiness is in the shining.
Happiness is people admiring what I have.
Happiness is people admiring me because of what I have.
Happiness is people coveting what I have.
Happiness is people coveting me because of what I have.
Happiness is people turning their head to notice what I have.
Happiness is people turning their head to notice me because of what I have.
My collection doesn’t have a heart.
They won’t hurt me.
I can collect them, and they won’t hurt me.
I can control them, and they won’t hurt me.
I can love them, and they won’t hurt me.
They don’t have a heart.
They won’t hurt me.
