To deliver even


And sometimes,

In my most desperate moments,

My most hopeful hours,

I have wished

That I was your


So that every reluctant moment

You spend in

over half the guys I have dated were in band and i just think this poem is hilarious and i've had the same feelings, writing the poems but never really saying anything
