Love me.

Love me,

And I’ll let you win at scrabble.

Put down the book I’m reading,

Just to smile at you.

*

Pretend to be asleep,

Just to let you watch me a little more.

Go to the beach during sun set,

And watch you instead.

*

Love me,

And I’ll write poems for you

Letting my words make love to you.

*

We can make forts,

And fall asleep inside them.

Bake cookies in the kitchen,

And end up having food fights instead.

*

We can go on road trips,

And get lost on the way.

*

I’ll let you pick the songs

When we drive.

And you can stay up all night,

Listening to me whine.

*

We can spend Saturdays,

Watching bad TV at home.

Steal kisses on the road,

When no one’s looking.

*

Love me,

And I’ll give you my soul

And then some.
