wishes make poor companions

Wishes make poor companions

I want to be well
am I well?
I want you to be well
please be well
be well for you
be well for her
she needs you

and I don’t know what I need
-not that you asked

I look in the mirror and I wish
I wish I was beautiful again
I wish my belly was round
and high
and he was here to love us

I wish I didn’t cry
every night

I wish you didn’t feel pity

I wish I could feel

I wish I could touch

I wish I could see

I wish I was stronger
don’t I?

I wish I
I wish I could let go
of so much
I wish there was something more real
than wishes to keep me company tonight

but love is gone
