Just Because You Want Me To

I?m not going to use big words
Just because you want me to
And I?m not going to make it rhyme
Because you say it sounds better

I?m just going to use
Small
Average
Plain
Words
Written in
Short
Choppy
Sentences
And fragments

And it is fine.
Because I like it that way

Because why do we have to say that the sun kissed the apple
When the sun doesn?t have lips
So it wouldn?t kiss an apple

And why would we say the leaves danced in the wind
When leaves can?t hear music
So they certainly can?t dance

And why do we have to write that pages begged to be turned
When pages can?t talk
So they wouldn?t ask that

I change my mind
I guess you?re right

It does sound better
To use
Flowery
Language
Written in
Complete
Comprehendible
Thoughts.

But I?m not going to
Just because you want me to
