The day I wished for 

is the one I hoped would never arrive

the day i wanted to live in,

is the one where everyone,


I knew the pain would come,

so wanting it to pass,

I imagined that day of last,

when they couldn't speak of their love.

It seemed better, 

to think of hurrying the time,

to when I wouldn't have to feel

this painful misery in between,

the future or past.

This is my crime,

waiting for everyone to die.

So I don't have see them suffer.

So I don't have to lose my mother, brother, sister, father.

Living faster as the pain subsides,

was my punishment.

It never goes away.

I should have known, neither does today.

We could have lived forever in this moment,

if I hadn't wished  away  this day.
