(Out)dated

Written by the me I was in 2001.
Some things change. Some things stay the same. 

 

We could go together and tell them we’re just good friends. We could bide our time on their naiveté. We could go away together and be what we want to be…

    Now all I need, is a ‘you.’

We could hang out together and ignore their conventional stars. We could return their aversions of acknowledgement, leaving the discomfort with them. We could love our lives and just be we…

    Now all I need, is a ‘you.’ 

We could be childish together and still sleep at night. We could laugh at ourselves and take the mickey out of ‘us.’ We could promise to each other for forever…

    Now all I need, is a ‘you.’

We could tempt the margins of the other side of the fence. We could bounce ourselves off these impeding walls. We could pretend for forever, both we or just me…

    Now all I need, is ‘you.’

We could serve one another the fuel frenzied hand. We could run away together and realize that home is where we want to be. We could go out of our heads to somewhere we both understand…

    Now all I need, is a ‘you.’
