You Want Her

Not quite enough to say hello

Or to answer her message.

Maybe not quite enough

For forever;

But a really good ‘right now’

Sounds great.


You want her just enough to lie

About something little, or perhaps big.

Just enough to get this sinking feeling

When you think of what you would risk

In getting her naked

Then getting rid of her.


I wonder if every time

A man decided he didn’t quite want her enough

His head exploded

How many would still be selfish enough

Stupid enough

To go through with it?


I wonder if every time a woman fell for a lie

She had to fall down a flight of stairs,

How much would she pay attention then?


Stop being the problem

Stop insulting your own intelligence

Stop believing everything you hear

Stop making yourself a victim

Stop lying.
