regretful wish

©2023 michael raven

'round the lake
of the isles
talking about things
easy to forget
sun slipping magenta
behind elms and oak

"if you could have
any wish come true,
what would be your
wish?" you ask

i lied and made up
some get rich quick
scheme or something
about living forever
one more thing
to forget...

regrets now
i didn't wish
out loud for
your kiss
