Want you to want me 

This might sound clichéI want you to stay

Volition 

not persuasion

should be your friend

or this will end 

Apologize by yourself

when you forget which shelf

the coffee pot goes

Or we will be foes

It might look trivial

let there be no denial

I want you to care

so we can fare

Through thick and thin

Together for the win

sounds like a commercial

But this is a rehearsal 

For the rest of our life

If I’m to be your wife

I want you to want me

So why can’t you see?

The Kite

He danced to the breeze 

as it licked his skin,

Hypnotized.

He was floating

above the noise

above the crowd.

His body strained 

To pull away

To break free.

The string wavered

stretched 

And snapped!

Finally he was free,

He soared

soared high 

and took with him 

All his hopes and dreams 

Painting them,

across the sky!
