Sunday, August 28

It sounds like wish list or an unrealistic fantasy from a personals ad.
but they are the romantic lyrics from one of my favorite songs.
Ani DiFranco wants to know if she's asking too much.
To which I say:

As long as your not asking it all of just ONE person, then
you can't possibly ask for too much.

Asking too much
I want somebody 
who sees the pointlessness
and still keeps their purpose in mind
I want somebody 
who has a tortured soul
some of the time
I want somebody 
who will either put out for me
or put me out of misery
or maybe
just put it all to words
and make me say, you know
I never heard it put that way
make me say, what did you just say?
I want somebody 
who can hold my interest
hold it and never let it fall
someone who can flatten me 
with a kiss that hits like a fist
or a sentence, that stops me 
like a brick wall
because if you hear me talking
listen to what I'm not saying 
if you hear me playing guitar
listen to what I'm not playing
and don't ask
me to put words
to all the spaces between notes
in fact if you have to ask, forget it
do and you'll regret it
I'm tired of being the interesting one
I'm tired of heving fun for two
just lay yourself on the line
and I might lay myself down by you
but don't sit behind your eyes
and wait for me to surprise you
I want somebody 
who can make me scream 
until it's funny
give me a run for my money
I want someone who can
twist me up in knots
tell me, for the woman who has everything
what have you got?
I want someone 
who's not afraid of me
or anyone else
in other words 
I want someone
who's not afraid of themself
do you think I'm asking too much?

No way.
Make up a list as long as your wildest fantasy
and see it get fulfilled by your community.
