I fell into a

Wishing well.

Everyone

Wishes me well,

But it gets hard to buy

What they're trying to sell

After a while.


I fell into a

Wishing well.

I can't

Wish myself out.


I fell into a

Wishing well

I can only wait it out--

Wait 'till morning

When I awake

From the nightmare

That is my mind

At night.


I fell into a

Wishing well.

Some days

I'm able to

Be a normal human--

Even feel like one--

Until I lose sight

At night

And then


I fall into the

Wishing well.


The author's comments:

The wishing well is being stuck, but everyone saying it will all be okay eventually and what I’m facing will get better. The time I believe it is in the morning when I’m able to climb my way out until I fall back in the next night.
