whim

i spent two wishes on you today.

sitting on the edge of the well

my lips moved silently

as i dropped the two pennies in.

it took a long time for me to hear them

touch the bottom.

it crossed my mind, wondering what it would feel

like to jump, throw myself to the bottom of the well,

exchange my life for yours.

after all, i wished for your life, not mine.
