Superfluous prognosticator, I am
merely sunshine
to your otherwise hot summer afternoon
I cannot possibly portray
myself as anything other were I committed
to honesty
and honestly when she asked if I meant it
I meant it
I mean it
I want it
I need it
I cannot otherwise be honest
open or free
without you knowing me the way I knew you wanted me
and now
and now
I’m gone
