I wish I knew how to not get involved;
to not care and to not hope.
I wish there was a button to just turn off
all the feelings that flood me and sweep me away.
I wish you could feel them and see for yourself
because then maybe you would understand.
I wish I could tell you that this is no game
hearts could be broken so easily here.
I wish I could explain to you how fragile I feel
ready to break into a million pieces.
I wish there was a way to know from the start
that my heart will be safe and not torn in half.
I wish I knew how to not get involved but
in doing that I know I can never win.
but I wish.
