POEM| If Wishes Were Horses

I wish I could give you all of me
Text you when I wake up in the morning
Call you during the day just to hear your voice
Tell you how much you mean to me
And ask to see you before you say you miss me


I wish I could give you what you want
The snuggles in bed
And the I love you texts
Hold your hand and never let go
And tell you I love you too

I wish I could be yours
Make your fantasies come alive
Make your dreams come true
Be more than a friend to you
And choose you


But I feel no desire, passion or lust
that makes one ignore all the flaws
and fall into deep oblivion
with no care in the world
