they ask if i wanna be in love?
no, not even within 1000 miles of an emotion so unpredictable.
instead i wanna b liked real hard. 
getting those call throughout the day b/c my voice rings through your head all 
texts when we can't speak, just to let me know you thinking of me. 
phone calls before i rest my eyes, 
so the last thought will be of you, 
even though my mind is already on you, 
i just wanted to hear your voice. 
tickled me funny,
 because he looks @ me as if he's seen the rarest jewel in the world. 
movies on wednesday because we can go for half price, 
and sneak and watch two more throughout the night, 
walks on monday so we can speak in silence, 
trying not to give too much thought about the nites we just had. we'll make 
dinner on tuesday, 
that's our prime time, 
a board game or even cards, 
i love it when you smile. 
hesitant to speak with tied tongues, 
because we may just choose to be in .... 
i just want to be liked real hard. 
where im wanted because im me, 
our time is always the best, 
b/c we're little kids again.. 
holding hands, skipping rocks, 
secret treasure boxes with our favorite things, 
wild adventures with dreams of our fantasies...
watching movies in the car at the park with the skies filled, 
picnics with our toes digging in the grass, 
reading passages from your favorite book, 
even volunteering @ the local hospital or feeding the homeless b/c that's just 
where your heart is..
it should just be so simple.. 
i smile, 
he laughs.. 
am i reaching?
