i do not want to be the girl that makes you forget
your nights filled with loathing and apathy
or that pushes the thought
of suicide from your cluttered closet of a mind
i want to be the girl that makes you remember
why you started to sing melodies filled
with tender notes and playful lyrics
and how splendid love was
when you first discovered it
all by
but i will take what i can get
and not be as greedy
as those
that partake in love
