I WANT TO BE THE ONLY ONE


I am reminded by your voicelessness

how much I need to hear your voice 

and this 

Reinforces this

I want to be the only one

I miss you in ways I shouldn’t 

and I dream dreams

I can never speak of

I’ve held my secret without 

Ever being held by my secret

I keep my secret without 

Being kept by my secret

My secret is held by whom

They’re a secret not

I want to be the only one



You stimulate my mind

Cause you don’t mind that I 

read books all the time 

And school others on there, their 

and they’re

While tending to me, my and mine 

I want you here 

Hand in my hair 

You hear?

Impossible mission

My one condition…yet

You’ve made no provision

 
And

I want to be the only one
