7 Days of Valentines Poems, #2: “All I Really Want to Do”

Man and Woman at the Mouth of a Cave, Herman van Swanevelt, via the National Gallery of Art, open access
“All I Really Want to Do”

 I don’t want to be your maid,
 be your slave,
 or be your page.
 All I really want to do
 is, baby, be in love with you.

 I don’t want to take advantage of you,
 steal freedom from you,
 or in any way own you.
 All I really want to do
 is, baby, be in love with you.

 I don’t want to stress you out,
 rack you with doubt,
 or run you about.
 All I really want to do
 is, baby, be in love with you.

 I don’t want to disengage you,
 rearrange you,
 or discourage you.
 All I really want to do
 is, baby, be in love with you.

 I don’t want to misinform you,
 try to transform you,
 or try to reform you.
 All I really want to do
 is, baby, be in love with you.
