i wish

Seven swans sat on the grass

when you kissed me.

You  robbed me of my dreams

I wish I could get angry

you took that away too.

You make me cry at midnight

and feel nothing at noon

I wish I could be cynical

you took that away too.

Everything I once was

is burried in a hole

my father helped you dig.

The swans flew away

when I laid down in the dirt.
