Love Me

I just
won’t let you
love me

For months
all you’ve
seen is me
Still I won’t
let you
love me

You’ve proved
yourself a man
beyond belief
Still I won’t
let you
love me

Your hair is fair
your eyes are blue
just like the man
I envisioned to
be you
Still I won’t
let you
love me

You told your
cat grandma
sister dad
I am the prize
the only prize
to be had
Still I won’t
let you
love me

You find me
brilliant
You find me
rare
You’re fine
yourself but
I do not care
Still I won’t
let you
love me

You’ve serenaded
You’ve paid your dues
You’ve worshiped me
while I’ve laughed at you
You’re coming back
You’re wanting more
Your fire hasn’t faded
through it all
Still I won’t
let you
love me

Lover’s season
is almost over
You never even
made me your
lover
I let you touch
me once
I let you touch
me twice
Your touch was
fine
Your touch was
nice
You touched my
toes
You touched my
heart
But you didn’t
violate me enough
from the start
Crazy me
Sick-girl me
You love my
nasty me
Still I won’t
let you
love me

  1. Wow! That hit home Terah! Years ago there was a great guy who I let go. In those days, I didn’t feel I deserved him. That was my reason. I married someone who treated me the way I was use to being treated. It took a long time to figure it out and then I left. I am on my own but it is good.
