    I just wanted to be remembered by her
    wanted her to have me indelibly written
    in the vaults of her memory bank

    she doesn't even really know me
    that's what pissed me off
    didn't give me the time
    played me off didn't want to
    hear the volumes that I remembered/
    had to say after we first met...

    ...I tell you I wouldn't be caught up like
    this if the wind shifted...see I caught her
    scent on my long term memory that reminded
    me of a day I longed for but...
    never met...until then....**** wind...
    now it carries my thoughts to her in
    recyclable bottles...with a two week
    expiration date...then, more "fresher" thoughts
    would be taken to her...

    maybe my own insecurities ache for her
    ...maybe it's my past...I no longer claim

    I just want her to think about me...
    maybe as the answer to 15 down, fifth letter
    the first to three across....or even the words she
    curses after anything...at least i'll be on her tongue...
    or maybe she'll loan me her name so she can be on mine
    maybe not...

    I just want her to have me written somewhere
    anywhere...I'll even settle for the back seat
    of a car she lost her virginity in

    maybe the wind intended to expose my insecurities
    so I could find myself...maybe..just maybe...

    a reflection of what could be...as the face of the pond ripples past...maybe is what we ask.

    nicely written.
