    Is it Money, Summer?

    I don’t want your money…

    At night give me the music of the crickets

    For us to sit together to make fun of them and to mimic

    Be the warm pearling sun on a gloomy day

    For me to be able to look into and for my eyes to be okay

    Electricity?

    Show me the lighting bugs

    Be my night and give me lovable hugs

    Water?… Come away with me outside

    When the rain falls hard and the sky for us has opened itself so wide

    Time? With me forever would be like flying into the wind of colorful space

    With fingers, would never get tired of outlining your face

    Entertainment? I’d tell you bed time stories of finger tips

    And you could tell me stories of juicy lips

    Food?

    I could live off chocolate, all the time, every day

    Winter would come and with just one another, we’d be okay

    Needed the humming of your heartbeat in my ear

    My core simply needed your manly voice to hear

    I just needed your time your body and your mind

    But

    I guess, I’m simply too expensive for you?

    I was mistaken

    I thought you were made for me and I for you

    Your loss
