Save me

Show up at my doorstep
and take me away -
(Or if you want to, instead,
I just might let you stay).

Tell me you love me
(it doesn’t have to be true).
Is that a strange plea?
‘Cause it’s all I want from you.

Be my hero tonight -
it’s my final request.
I hope you’ll do what’s right;
Prove that you’re the best.

That made me swoon. Also, check out and please comment if you can on my poem "Ode to a Croooked Spine." in the free-verse section.
