Not quite enough to say hello
Or to answer her message.
Maybe not quite enough
But a really good ‘right now’
You want her just enough to lie
About something little, or perhaps big.
Just enough to get this sinking feeling
When you think of what you would risk
In getting her naked
Then getting rid of her.
I wonder if every time
A man decided he didn’t quite want her enough
His head exploded
How many would still be selfish enough
To go through with it?
I wonder if every time a woman fell for a lie
She had to fall down a flight of stairs,
How much would she pay attention then?
Stop being the problem
Stop insulting your own intelligence
Stop believing everything you hear
Stop making yourself a victim
