Empty Wishes

by Oneal Walters

If wishes were granted and all dreams
Came true, I would willingly close my eyes
Open the doors of my heart and wish for you.
Silently dreaming powerfully for you to arrive,
For the darkness in your life to fad away by my light
And for your loneliness to be satisfied in my arms.
I know that you're drowning in consuming stress,
I understand that you have unresolved issues.
I would bravely envelop your pain as my own,
Guiding you safely through your tormenting trials
Knowing that whatever your issues are, we'll deal with it.
These wishes and this dream is short lived,
Reality becomes unavoidable like acid burning hunger.
My understanding of this matter slowly develops
As my conscience awakens from this wish, an illusion.
I closed the doors to my heart and opened my eyes.
I'm seeing that my life would be better without her.
I do believe that I'm right but I don't know why.

Message: When you accept someone, you must take in all their luggage.
See with your eyes-what is truly there. Don't only see with your heart.
