I never left my television on. But, I wished I had been forgetful tonight.
The night was still as usual. But, I wished the cracked window pane was the wind’s doing.
My boyfriend wasn’t home. But, I wished those footsteps I heard creeping up behind me, were his.
As I turned to face it, I wished I was dead.
Sometimes, wishes do come true.
