Cheap Trick Turnabout

I want you to want me
           only want me when you get to decide

I need you to need me
           are independent and don't need anyone by your side

I love you to love me
           love me one day and not the next

I'm begging you to beg me
                    .....the concept of begging leaves you perplexed


You now want me
                   ..... I found someone new who wants to be with me all the time

You now need me
          needs are now fully met, I'm now blissfully sublime

You now love me
                   .....I found someone that loves me truly every day

You now beg me
                    .....a little too late is all I have to sadly say

    An old story in that needs to be rehashed in this great tale of yours. It makes me want to jump on the bandwagon and jump up and down for this happy ending! Luv, Lizzie

    Reminds me of the blues classic 'You don't miss your water til the well runs dry'...Love the contrast in each line and they way you completly turn the tables in the second verse...I love Cheap Trick!

    Gee-this reminds me of someone I knew who was always coming close and then withdrawing as far as his girlfriends and other friends were concerned. It's not very pleasant to be around. Your poem describes the condition perfectly.

    I have known this feeling. Eloquently articulated. People want the ones they can't have. Well done.
