I have no idea when I wrote this but it is quite funny. I am obviously trying to work out how to make a boy like me, and am contemplating playing ‘hard to get’. I seem to think that this approach will ‘snare’ him – but I’m also worried that it’s pretty dishonest. I think I was over-thinking it! (I have no idea if I had any success with this boy, whoever he was, by the way) Written at around 15, maybe? I don’t know.
I want to say all the right words
But I think that they may not be right
I’d like to involve him with me
But involvement for him is too tight.
To deny him myself is the way!
Then I know he will want all of me –
But denying emotion is truth
That I no longer want to be free
So how can I and what can I say?
And which actions am I to pursue?
If he wants to I’ll want to give back
But if not then my act is untrue.
Can simplicity drop my my door
And come in for a cup and a tear
And explain away all my spare words,
To leave few, which are blatantly clear.
