“ If Only ” – ‘twas wishful thinking –

DSCN6839  Listen to audio

If only

‘Twas wishful thinking,

Of probable reality

Evidenced an inkling,

Mightn’t so endorse

That of every wish,

Be credible of course

Save the odd amiss,

Held dreamers

Of likely myths,

Be dubious design

Confounded as a gift,

Questions waste of time…

 

If only

Suffered wanting,

Said ‘twas wishful thinking

Be thus understood,

One may not be bidding

For mind games’ likelihood!

“ An Only Kiss ” ~ more than a wish ~

One’s likely dream

Be of an only kiss,

Might lead to more

Than but a wish

Of might’ve been,

Should one persist,

To acquiesce                                                                               

Would deem suggest,

Afar but a triste geste…

 

Wouldst not a kiss

Submit to so insist,

All in the spirit

Of impulse,

To later reminisce

Of its wondrous bliss,

Thus not deprive

A promise to survive,

More than an only kiss!
