bury these wishes at
the old oak tree
wait for them to grow
and take root
but
     they will not,
                        will they?
wishes are wishes and 
i cannot stop wishing
damned to disappointment
i claw back dirt
and i
       and i
              and i
                     and i
bury the wishes deep
inside the locks around
my
                             heart
