Admit something …

Everyone you see, you say to them,
“Love me.”

Of cour­se you do not do this out loud;
other­wi­se, someo­ne would call the cops.

Still though, think about this,
this gre­at pull in us
to connect.

Why not beco­me the one
who lives with a full moon in each eye
that is always saying,
with that sweet moon language,
what every other eye in this world
is dying to hear?
