I wish I had more time to sleep in
I wish I had the power to give everyone happiness
I wish I had longer summers
I wish I had a private jet to travel
I wish I had a closet full of designer clothes
I wish I had an unlimited amount of food
I wish I had a magic wand to make all my wishes come true
"Only fifteen more pounds,"
A phrase so simple yet so powerful
A phrase that held her life in the palms of its hands
A phrase that was slowing killing her
At first it was only for track,
but then it became something more,
It wanted her life.
And it would take it.
"It's only fifteen pounds"
"I'm doing it for myself, not anyone but for myself"
"It's only fifteen pounds."
Water rocked the boat,
swaying them gently
The sun sunk
They stood not speaking
She stared a the beauty of the world
He stared at the beauty beside him,
And he loved every bit
He spoke breaking the silence
It must've been the way he spoke
Or the way his eyes resembled the water
They found themselves leaning in
And they were kissing,
in that moment he realized what he was missing.
