The Wish to Gizmoduck 
A wish gone wrong 
Wrongs made right 


The Wish (Martin verse) 

Here was a wish she made one night
This boy to love and hold her tight
To be her hope and guiding light
To be the reason all is right
-
Who knew that wishes do come true
And with a tear he loved her too
Into her arms this boy now flew
Yet without wish what would he do
-
In love they passed both day and night
Then in a time got married too
Her heart relaxed as moments flew
And something here just wasn’t right
-
Now though he stayed forever true
Other’s arms would hold her tight
And for his love he’d leave on light
Till she felt shame what did I do
-
She tried so hard to make wrongs right
What could she do to free her light
And as she died he held her tight
Here was a wish she made one night 


A wish come true becomes a person's regret is echoed in thus Martin verse. Martin verse uses five stanzas of four lines each. Though a meter is desirable, it is not essential. Once the eight words are selected they should not be changed.  The first two stanzas introduce the eight words. The third and fourth stanzas mix the words of the first two stanzas. The fifth stanza uses the words of the first stanza, in reverse order. 

The Form:        
A1, A2, A3, A4
B1, B2, B3, B4
A1, B2, B3, A4
B1, A2, A3, B4
A4, A3, A2, A1

Martin verse has no copy right nor is the form proprietary. It is hoped that everyone will enjoy, use and share this new, fun and surprisingly easy poetic form.

There was this girl. She really desired this boy. He was all she could think about. Every dream, every being of her existence was him. Her wish was answered when he fell in love with her. They had a storybook romance. A romance better than she had dreamed, They married. Things changed. Though he was a remarkable husband, her feelings for him began to change. She thought having children, for some reason, would keep them strong, keep them together. The couple had two children: a boy and a girl. The children helped; a little bit. Though her magic feelings never returned, they seemed stabilized; for a while. As the children grew older, what little love she had began to deteriorate. She entered into an affair with another man. Her husband loved her so much that he couldn't see the truth. Her daughter could, though. It was for the daughter the mother broke off the affair. Now, not only was the love for the boy of her dreams completely gone, but the shame of what she had done to a man who remained faithful was eating at her. Eating at her so badly that she died. Arlene and I heard this story from the wife of Arlene's cousin. It was her mother. 

On the subject of wishes, I can't fully put them aside. There was the whole fairy tale of how I, all of the sudden, fell in love with Arlene, When I was touched by a magic tear. Then there was a girl's wish, in the story I just related, Add to these, all the wonderful, magical things that happened to Arlene and me. Chevron, in their Positive Training, had another theory. Instead of wishes, Chevron pointed to desire. If a person's desires are strong enough and focused enough the chances of desires being realized increases. This has to do with the internal as well as the external. If a person believes they are in "the dark" and only bad things happen to them, then (because of their belief) they are and they do. Many desires are watered down, We want this and that. We make negative affirmations. I need money. In need to lose weight. Meaning I am broke or I am fat. Surprisingly casting off negative desires in favor of positive ones improves situations. Wishes as desires can come true. We may not climb to the top of our dreams come true, but oh the wonders we will reach as we try. And try we can. Led on by our desire(s).  And as we are led on, let us Enjoy.


Back to the verse: Bliss "Wish You Were Here"

  4. Yeah, many water them down indeed, trying to sound a bit better than what they truly are. But going all positive at one's sea, can sure make more wishes come to be.

  6. Be careful what you wish for...
    I always worry when wishes are based on someone else 'making it right'. Someone else to affirm we have worth...
    Wishes (and change) need to start within.
    The wish come true in your poem is so very sad. For everyone caught up in it.

  7. Very sad story.. to stop loving the love of one's life and loving someone else is really strange but happens..how guilt brought her demise is really heartrending! .
    And yes..i agree ..wishing something too much can make it come true.. artistic philosophy though! I like the depth of thought and insight. Thanks Martin
