If you could take me by the throat - choke the nonsense right out of me.
Make me see the staples that hold - layers of tissue and mass and humanity and mortality.
Would my eyes burn a thousand watts - manifesting that I understand energy's plan.
I wonder if you will ever - release that grip.

I get apprehensive.
Will you like me as much as I like me?
That is the question.
Which really isn't asking much.
Will I give you a reason to stay?
Is there anyway to enhance my odds?
I want to say I will do anything,
But I won't.
I will continue to bite my nails.
Hoping I am good enough.
For you and me.
