lime (living sweeter than sweeteners)

I wished I could
tell all the truth
and so I did and
my wish came true.

I wished I could
be seen and see
and so I saw
but I did not find me
until I saw
such a beauty around me!

Then I wished
I couldn’t be hurt
but it did hit me so hard
I could not breathe and my heart
got broken in the pain,
and that pain, that pain, it healed me
and so my desire.

So I never wished
I could be desired. I wasn’t

and I wished
I could grasp the whole
and I reached nothing, nothing at all!

Now I just know
I can belove.
