Wishes Don't Come True

Wishes Don't Come True

A Poem by A.Lee

I’ve thrown pennies into wishing pools

Praying you would hear my pleas

I really don’t think I ask for much

I just want to be loved for me

 

But my wishes always go unheard

They never seem to matter

Because every time I think I’ve won

The pieces of my life are scattered

 

I’m so tired of making wishes

Because wishes don’t come true

No matter how much I try and try

Those pieces just won’t stay glued

 

I really wish I could go a day

Without feeling I’m going insane

Friends who love with no strings attached

Pillars when hope begins to wane

 

But since I know that will never be

I’m forced to hold it in

With gauze and tape and bitter thoughts

Much to my chagrin

 

I’ve always been a loner

It’s always been just me

I’ve found my ways to deal with things

To force my apathy

 

But I’m tired of making wishes

Because wishes just don’t come true

No matter how much I try and try

Those pieces just won’t stay glued

 

There’s a piece of me in everyone's hands

From the times you loved then left

And I can’t put me back together

Without the ones you kept

 

If I could see my wish come true

I’d just wish to be whole

Because every day I go with out

Life's seeping from my soul

 

I’ve made it farther than I've ever been

Because of people like you who cared

But it was just a fluke like everything else

And now I’m hurting, alone and scared

 

But God, I’m tired of making wishes!

No, wishes just don’t come true

No matter how much I try and try

Those pieces just won’t stay glued...

Author's Note

This was written in a moment of sadness. More of a vent write than anything. The rhyme scheme... I don't know what it is but I seem to be stuck in rhyme at the moment. I wasn't planning on making it rhyme, it just happened...

There are those moments when we are down and feeling everything isn't going on our ways, and this is exactly how you've expressed and written it.

a very beautiful but yet a sad poem written in disappointment, we feel sad and sometimes broken when our wishes don't come true, trust in god and true faith can do any miracle.... lovely poem!

The emotions in this piece are awesome. I agree with Ashley that one stanza is breathtaking. It's very powerful, so much desire and hope and dreams, very, very beautiful and elegant. Loved it! Keep up the good writing! :)
