Poisoned Wish

Poisoned Wish
By Nomar Knight

Be careful what you wish for
When you open your heart
Vulnerability opens a door
Forever tearing us apart

We envisioned two lovers
Dancing in the night
Swaying under covers
Allowing love to take flight

But when fate delivered
What we hoped to be sweet
Reality made us shiver
Delight no longer neat

Trapped in cruelty's passion
Desire threw caution away
Not even infidelity's fashion
Could make you stay

We had much to lose
You chose not to break a dish
I'm left singing the blues
All from our poisoned wish
