if only I was

   a child again

 

I could take joy

  in birthday wishes

 

and blowing bubbles

   but wishes are

 

just that

   I found Alladin’s lamp

 

so long long ago

   I rubbed and rubbed

 

nobody loved me then

   nobody loves me now

 

they got paid

   to pretend

 

that was the wish

   the genie granted

 

So I wished for love

   but genie’s are malicious

 

or is that capricious

   not sure which

 

so I loved

   or they loved

 

but never at the same time

    cursed

 

you know how it ends

   if only I was

 

a child again

   I could take joy

 

in birthday wishes

   and blowing bubbles

But…
