Wished Away

He wished it all away
and vanished once more
to try someone else on for size.
This person didn't fit the bill,
so memories of her surge back.
Always the one left behind,
she wishes away the time
and learns to be alone again.
Her thoughts vacillate between
remorse and hate.
She was so sure about them,
but she was wrong about him.
They both want the same thing,
but neither is ever on the same page
at the same time.
So on they go,
simultaneously alone
and wishing away fading memories
of each other.
