I don’t want to be an eye candy,
Nor a soul food,
I want to be your meaning, your galaxy,
Something to keep you breathless for good.
I want to be something more than that,
Something to keep you up at night,
I want to be your amulet,
Your courage when you fight.
I want to be the last cigarette you smoke,
An answer to your ‘why’
I want to be your best told joke,
Your last wish before you die.
I want to be your dream,
And your nightmare all in one,
I want to be your coffee and your cream,
Your sadness and your fun.
But I already am all of that,
Darling don’t you see?
I am a whole world, your perfect habitat,
You just couldn’t handle me.
