The Idea of You

I think of you. I think about you.
It doesn’t matter if I don’t want to.
You’ve seen to it that my finger is not on that switch.
Unbidden invasions and conquest of coherent thoughts
Are your calling card. There is no barricade against you.
I’ve pushed you out of my mind, only to toss you away
Like some beautiful boomerang I can’t wait to catch.
I am happily helpless when it comes to you
Regardless of whether I want you or want to be wanted.
There is no hiding from you in any vault
Unless you let me hide in your safe room.
And no wish will make it any other way.

  1. This one is somewhat different, it’s more like a short story.
    happily helpless, I like that.
    I reminds me of Tanita Tikaram.

    It’s so late
    I think of you
    He walks me home
    I think of you
    I’m so sorry, i’m so tired
    I think of you
    And in the shadows
    I think of you
    I close my eyes
    I think of you
    Now i’m falling
    I think of you
