Let’s give up

this fairy tale business

I’m straight in the head

& will not fall into a trance

seeing You across a parking lot

I will not grab You in public

& try to kiss You

like The Princess

& The Frog

please let’s end this

lifetime of Love

hidden & declared

I have said enough

& You have withheld

Your Dream
