Twist the stem And I was scared As I got close to your name It landed on just that one letter That you write on every paper And letter and note Because you were the letter of my apple stem
I was told when I was younger “Twist a stem, that person will love you” But now I realize that if you plant a stem Nothing will grow from it but hope A twisted stem detached from the apple Means nothing but the fact That I love you
I thought that I could love you If my red apple told me so And I was right because I really do love you I eat apples until I’m sick and can’t stomach the thought of anymore But that means nothing with a twisted branch And all that’s left Is a broken apple stem
When I was younger, I was told that if you hold an apple and twist the stem while saying the alphabet, whichever letter the stem broke on would be your next true love. I was doing this with a friend today (even though we're almost 16) and I realized how silly it was for the thousandth time. I knew it was stupid and ridiculous, but I kept doing it, simply because of hope.
