I HATE YOU DON’T LEAVE ME
Read it, you have it. Everyone has it.
You will resist that you have it. You don’t have it.
No one has it.
Princess Diana had it.
With precision you can have it. Or point to it.
Gravity says you got it.
Hold it right there, yep I knew it. I don’t want it.
Give it, I’ll take it. I can’t wait, no fuck it.
I welcome you to have it. Look at it, you want it?
Carry it and I’ll grab it. Watch for snakes, NO I GOT IT.
don’t drop it.
Ok now you be me, go get it.
