Heart’s Wishes

My heart feels pain seen in my face

In times of solitude it makes me wish three wishes

In it’s place

Wishes that have been in there for so long

Because of everything that has happened to us

I wish I knew how to love without killing myself

Because sometimes I love the wrong people

Even love to much when I know I shouldn’t

I wish I knew how to mend hearts without breaking my own

Always giving more of myself to others

At the sake of my own happiness

I wish I knew how to kiss and not create bruises

My lips not knowing how to be gentle

Ravage others in the presence of passion

I feel the pain of my heart

But I have only one wish of my own

I wish all the pain would end soon

First Glimmer

Getting onto the windowsill
My body lets out a sigh
As if it were automatic
My head tilts up to the sky
I see it glimmering brightly
A small light, it let out in a burst
There are no others around it
This one was here first
As I sat there looking
Others came into focus
But the initial one
Remained as my locus

The way life was going for me
It was beginning to look bleak
Somehow my heart opened up
And it started to speak
I want her to be able to hear me
To her I’ll no longer be a mime
I want her to take me on
If only just one time
I want her to see that there is truth
In every word that I say
To me, being with her
Seems to be the only way

Let her see that with her
All my time I’m willing to spend
I want her to see me as more
Way more than just a friend
In me I want her to see
That there can be success
When I ask her to be mine
Please help her to say yes
I wondered how I could put my faith
In something so far
But I put my skepticism aside
Thought of you and…
