I Wish

I wish I could
go back in 
time, to when 
my rickety
self esteem 
didn't come from 
strangers liking my 
poems, but from 
knowing that I'd
done right by a
woman I loved,
really loved, and
who had loved
me for 18 long
years.

But, unfortunately
we can't turn back
time.

I guess that a lot 
of people have
regrets, and wish
that they could do
things differently.

But, the constant
backwards, and
forwards of time
would cause that
much paradoxical
activity that the
world would implode.

Still, I wish. As most
of us must.
