For once, how about he goes crazy for me
Let him be the one running to his journal to help his mind get light,
As his paper becomes heavy with the words of “she’s”
For once, let him be the one writing rhymes about how I make him feel
How he thinks this is right
How he must get her
Let him deal with the clichés for once
Getting weak at the knees just from the sights of my pictures
Getting nervous from the mention of my name
For once, have his heart racing when he sees a message sent from me again
For once, I want him to want me as bad as I want him
For once, I want him to love me as much as I love him
For once, have me in his head the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night
Dreaming of us
For once, have him feel me when I read his words
Feeling my essence in silence
Let him be the one for once writing this poem about how he wishes I was writing poetry about him for once
