I'm not lovesick
I'm lustsick
I want you so bad.
My heart doesn't need you,
but my head does.

You're Mr. Teenage Dream
and I know I'm no beauty queen
but I'm still begging you to choose me.

You don't give me heartaches,
they're toothaches.
You're my guilty pleasure,
my ice cream on a Sunday.

L-O-V-E?
L-U-S-T.


The author's comments:
I thought I was in love with a boy, "the One" and all that jazz, at 14. Ridiculous. I now look back on it (although not long ago, in fact I'm still getting over it) and realize that I didn't want him truly. I just thought I did.

Dear Lindley,

 

so MHS is having a Literary Magazine where you can submit poems and short stories and whatnot. Anywhoooo I think you should throw this one in there :) just sayin'. Teach MHS that L-U-S-T is not L-O-V-E? ;) I think you'd have a really good chance of getting in! I can give you the papers and chiz at school if you want them.

 

Signed,

panderr <3
