I’m Wishing

how is it possible

that a whiff of a familiar smell

can make you feel emotions you have tried

to hide deep inside

for days




how is it possible

to see someone who resembles you

smells like you

smiles like you

in the slightest way possible

and get punched in the gut

over and over again


how is it possible?

I have to stop wondering why

It kills me each time I recount the moment you left me

I recalculate

Is it something I had done

Hadn’t done


Hadn’t said

I have to stop asking


I just wish other guys would stop looking like you

And would get a different haircut

And would use a different cologne

Drive a different car maybe

Get pizza from a different pizza shop


I just wish…
