{Wreckage}

Wish not, want not

I must stop yearning for you

Desire makes me vulnerable

To the pain you put me through

Time after time I pine for your touch

A soft kiss on the lids of my eyes

As they shut

Your voice the calm strength to my slumber

For the most of you

I hope against hope

Only to set myself up

For disappointment

Fate will always intervene

Reminding me

I am in control of nothing.

So, maybe one day I will see

That wanting only leads…

…To wreckage.
