I want you so bad

 

Of the many profound words you would speak, “I want you so bad” remains filed away.

I once brought it with me to the sea, with the paper you slipped me, and the language you studied.

And I fought, for the night, the idea of trading you in for some peace.

But “I want you so bad” danced in circles around me and laughed at my nudity I so desperately wanted you one day to

see.

 

I want you so bad

I want you so, so bad

 

You and I are like this, you said.

A push then a pull

A push then a pause

Heavy in my partner’s hands while my father gives me away. “I want you so bad”, please don’t follow me down to my

wedding day.
