Sometimes you just need to say what's running around in your heart.

Circling Hearts 

I buy you things 

and you say 

you feel like a heel. 

I wish you understood 

they're just trinkets. The reason I do 

is because I can't buy you 

what's in my heart. 

I can only 

give that away. 


I need you 

like a school 

needs children. 

I miss you 

like the desert 

misses the rain. 

I love you 

like a duck 

loves water. 

You are 

everything I am 

and so much more. 


I wish I could 

give you a thousand roses. 

All of them red. 

To fill a room 

with their intoxicating scent. 

Their blooms would 

entice you to throw 

caution to the wind. 

Their silky feel would 

make you want to stay. 


I need you 

like a school 

needs children.
