icky little love poem for my Speech Act Exercise written for my Techniques of Poetry course last year.

x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x...

this is mine now

:

I'm gonna keep this

Hope you don't mind

But I think I'm gonna keep this

Hold it close call it mine

I'm sorry if you wanted it for yourself or maybe another

Well I'm not sorry but forgive me please

I admit I confess I am guilty of selfishness

I know when something is of value and

I covert that treasure name it precious

I say This Is Mine Now

And beg you not to take it away

I would like to keep this

Hold it close never part save it til I die

I'll keep it safe and sound I swear

x.x.x

I would never let something so special go without a fight
