here's a poem infused with passion for the unrequited.

Hold My Hand Tightly

Wonder how -- wonder why --

she gets so busy all the time,

and falls right -- yeah, just right --

off the grid,

only to come back and then say

that I'm her only "baby",

and write to me with emojis,

even though we're hittin' up our mid-twenties.

I'm probably, definitely, older than she

is,

but she has so much on her plate,

and copes with it better than I ever could,

but I'm not surprised

'cause I think I'm just... not-that-great.

Yeah, I wanna lose track of time

with her red hair in my face.

Yeah, I wanna forget my past-lives

and just enjoy her taste, chin, and space.

Come on, baby, baby,

come and sit with me.

I want your company,

and I'll even write your name

in a notebook that I'll never read

'til I'm thirty-three,

and I want you to hold my hand

tightly.
