Wish in one hand, shit in the other. See which fills up first.

I wish you could
have been honest †
from the beginning. †
  
I wish I hadnít †  
fallen for the †  
sick machinations †
of a couple of †
sadistic fucks †
who deserve †  
one another. †
†  
I wish the two †
of you hadnít †  
used me as meat, †
to be burned in †
sacrifice just †  
because the †  
smell is pleasant. †
†  
I wish youíd given †  
me that choice. †
†  
But I was the †  
bad guy. †
†  
I wish Iíd known. †
†  
I would have bought †  
a cape †  
and a mustache, †  
one with curly †
ends so I could †
twist them like †
a black-and-white †  
movie villain. †
I have that flair †  
for the dramatic †  
you know. †
†  
I wish Iíd known †
I was a self-absorbed †
controlling †  
blackmailer. †
Who knew?! †
†  
Or that you †  
laughed about me †
every fucking †
day. †
†  
That was a kick †
in the dick †
I wish I didnít †
have to take. †  
†  
And fuck my life †
if I donít wish youÖ †
†  
well. †
†  
I wish you well.
 
I wish you †  
get the bike, †
write the book, †
break the chains, †
leave the past. †  
†  
I wish you would †
Heal. †
Find rain. †
Find the shore. †
†  
You were more than †
words on the †
screen. †
†  
I wish. †
†  
†  
†  
I wish.  
†  
†
