Ever After

ever wish it didn't beat
it could tear
or feel deceit?
ever wish you had no breath
there was no dark
and then no death?
ever wish there was no first
no joyful time
no best or worst?
ever think it would be best
if all the love
remained unblessed?
and then of course
you would have missed
the winning smiles
first time you kissed.
and what of friends
steadfast and true
who lived and died
~ their legends grew?
ever wish there was no start
no end in sight
to break your heart?
ever wish for one clean breath
when you could see
life after death?
