I wish I never
Write a story or poem using this as the opening line
I wish I never smiled like this,
I wish I never laughed like I do,
I wish I never loved like I do.
I hate the way my chin looks when I smile.
I hate the way I get made fun of for my laugh.
I hate the way I fall for anyone who is kind to me.
All just because I haven’t had nice people often.
I wish I never knew you Mady,
I wish I never said what I love you Sam,
I wish I never lost you ellian...
I wish I had never noticed you
Who stood out from the crowd
Now I know I’ve been swimming
In those deceitful eyes of blue
I wish I had never fell for you
So innocent, you seemed
Did you know this love would fade?
Or be ripping at the seams?
I wish I had never played your game
You drew your bow and pulled it back
Struck me with immaculate aim
Your arrow poisoned my heart and it faded to black
I wish I never met you then
I would never hurt again
Cause I’m so caught up in you lies
And all your narcissistic cries
Pity games are not much fun
And I’m unsure when ours begun
I’m just so sick of all your excuses
And our friendships toxic misuses.
I wish I can ditch you here
But you refuse to disappear
And I feel stuck in your web of hate
And I’m too tired to debate
So I’ll just feed ...
I wish I never saw your face
Because since that day
Things haven't been the same
I wish I never knew your name
Because your simple phrase
Eats away at my brain
I wish I never said hello
Because our friendship
Was the beginning of my doom
I wish I never touched your heart
Because now I'm lost
Missing my spark
I wish I never said goodbye
Because now you're gone
My life is done...
I wish I never did this,
But the deed is on my hands,
I wish i never said this,
But i testified on the stand.
I hope Ill never say this,
But i guess i will,
I hope ill never say that,
The crime was such a thrill.
I know I shouldn’t be this,
But now I’m a happy like bird,
Because the man I hurt is changed now,
At least, that’s what I heard.
They wished the shame would haunt me,
But I’m not reall...
I wish I never took that chance
I wish I never let you in
I wanted you
But you turned the other way
My heart pounds every time I see you
Still no idea of the dark thoughts that swarm me at every hour of every day
It squeezes and compresses
My skull, aching every time I see you
That night was surreal
I’m not sure it even happened
All I know is that you took a piece of me wit...
The one who wasn’t my boyfriend.
The one I argued on street corners with.
The one who told me he’d never met anyone like me.
The one I stayed up late talking, deep into the night.
The one who skipped work to take me out.
The one who said he loved me.
The one I kissed again.
The one I kept saying no to.
The one I enjoyed having power over. The one I knew would do anything for me.
I wish I had never taken that job offer. It looked totally normal at the time, a basic uniform, no required skills, maybe the hours were a little strange( 12pm-3am) but I was dying for the extra pay and it definitely payed well. It was a Starbucks, nothing out of the ordinary, or so I thought.
