“ If Only ” ~ wishful thinking ~

If only

Wishful thinking

Evidenced an inkling

Of probable reality,

Mightn’t so endorse

That of every wish

Held dreamers,

Be credible of course,

Save the odd amiss

Finds wasted time,

For likely be but myths

Of disquieting design…


If only

Suffering wants,

Said wishful thinking

Be thus understood,

One may not opt bidding

For mind game’s likelihood!


“ If Only ” ~ I’d known how ~

If only

I’d known how

To tell you

What I should,

Words that spoke

Of feelings then

We’d misunderstood,

We might’ve found

To comprehend,

There came a point

Our love affair

Rather than beginning,

Had started at the end!
