Wish it Away

from Farewell Plutonia by The Contrarian



Kicking is hard when you're kicked.


Wish it Away

Gone are the days when you could depend
On your will
Casting around for some real evidence
Of former thrills

Carry the scars of those many years you spent
Sticking skin
Under the archway, or behind the barricade
Sickly grin

Wish it away
You can’t just
Hope for the day, when

Chasing the conflict, flirting with consequence
Gets so old
Covered in blankets, burning with apathy
Skin so cold

Silently hoping your phone will ring again
Counting threads
Promise next Wednesday, you’ll take the cure again
Or instead?

Wish it away
You can’t just
Hope for the day, when

All this time spent drawing flies…
