A Wish

I will never wish that I hadn’t met you

Or that you hadn’t said the things you said

The long conversations of discovery

I will never wish for that time back

The amount of time persuading

You were nothing like the rest

I will never wish for you not to have meant it

The heartfelt words poured into my soul

Igniting a fire long ago extinguished

I may only wish that I hadn’t let myself start to believe it

That maybe you weren’t anything like the rest

It would have made it so much easier

When your actions undid all the words you said
