you- you are truly something special.
you are the train i never saw coming:
the weight of your cargo hit me so hard
that i am still reeling to this very day.

i have decided that you are no diamond-
in the rough or otherwise.
you are a pearl stuck in some stubborn bivalve:
oh, i want to pry you out with my soft fingers.

you are also quite the crustacean,
sidestepping all my attempts to catch you.
for in your mind, i am just another predator.
(i don't want a damn pet: i want a friend.)
