If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

He can read me like an open book;

But there are pages that he’ll overlook;

The best chapter is where he partook;

Me for a fool, oh, he never mistook.


He knows me better than anyone;

With him I can always expect some fun;

I love his every single pun;

I will mourn when all of this is done.





I know it’s selfish of me;

Some kind of absurdity;

Bet he didn’t think I had the audacity;

The ferocity;

What I’m saying is pure idiocy;

But here I go ridiculously;

On him I want to have a monopoly;

It’s not jealousy;

He and I just have a compatibility;

Some kind of harmony;

And it’s a rarity;

A sanctity;

To waste it would be an atrocity;

A felony;

I want to be his necessity;

Mean more to him than anything in the galaxy;

I want to be there through his misery;

Help with the recovery;

And share in his victory;

We could leave a legacy.




There are plenty of fish in the sea;

But only one that’s meant for me;

I want him to know how much he means to me;

How without him I’d just be so empty.




I trust him with every ounce of my soul;

My heart is what he stole;

He makes me feel whole;

I don’t know if that’s his goal.




I want to drive every girl from his mind;

And maybe one day he will find;

That our stars have aligned;

We could leave everyone else behind.




I know him better than he’d care to admit;

Our friendship is quite exquisite;

From which we both benefit;

A connection that will never quit.




I love it when he says my name;

I’m not tired yet of this game;

I’m the only one to blame;

And it’s always the same.
