I wish that you could see
the intrinsic value in me
in the vein that David Bowie
a song to Bob Dylan.
I wish that I could be a pop singer
on pitch like harbingers –
like fathers reciting Godly notes so prophetic
or Nehemiah to hungry people interested –
I wish, I wish, I wish someone would make room in their heart for me.
Today I promised
that I'd try to be honest
- no more doubting Thomas -
I won't be a self-fulfilled
I wish that you would stop living in the past
like clipping vocal tracks
on mountaintops peaking.
I'm sinking so deeply
into your sine wave collapse
to taste lips and body seated on
I wish, I wish, I wish you would make room in your heart for me.
I've done nothing to take advantage of you.
I've done nothing wrong.
I have done you
