Lust Sick

October 10, 2010
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.

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
