How I Want You, Part 2

I wanna want you in all the best ways.

Lift your heart and make every day your lucky day. Hold you safe, Sweet Thing.
Sing you sweetly, love you softly, drink you deeply. It’s what I want and I think I will.

But maybe I will take your heart that you give so sweetly, and maybe I’ll lock it up, that precious, beating thing, where it never will be seen.

Maybe I will seek until I find, search until I destroy.

And maybe one day you’ll find the doors are locked and the house is empty.

I want it to be real. I want it to be right. I want to want you in the best possible way.

  1. The quick and certain death of sweet trusting innocence is the theft of freedom. Capture it, and *poof*. Gone forever.

    Is this the guy who said, “I’d rather see you dead than see you with somebody else.”?

  2. I’m more familiar with his predecessor, “If I was your lover/boyfriend, I’d go nuts if anyone else ever looked at you.” That’s enough to send chills down my spine. I also know “If you leave me, I’ll kill myself.” (It’s been 16 years and he’s still alive.)

    I’ve met the guy you wrote about a number of times. Upon first glance he seems like a perfectly ordinary likeable guy. How else could he gain the trust of an innocent?

  3. Hi Larry,

    I have enjoyed your intelligent & witty responses on the “Self Conscious” blog & thought I’d check yours out. I thought there was an interesting contrast between how “I want you” I & II. II seems a bit more reserved, almost like a different voice altogether…

  4. Theresa – Sorry you had that run-in. God, it’s so hard to find a balance!

    Tacit1 – Thank you for saying my comments are intelligent and witty (pay attention, people!). I write everything “live” while I’m online, I mean it and I guess I don’t have enough control to get a consistent voice. These are my thoughts. If you stay with me here, I promise I’ll get better.
