Have Me

Have Me

A Poem by Colette
"

daydreaming in IKEA as I watch all the couples pass me by, wishing someone would have me for a little while

"

Have me for a little while
Til the lines take over and I’ll set u free
To go younger
But don’t let her be dumber

Have me
Have Me!
Because I could die tomorrow
I’ve cheated death more times
Than maybe I’ve been entitled to
And just because you may be younger
You could die sooner
It’s true
It’s happened.  I’ve lost too many friends
In their youth.

Neither of us should live with regrets
We should laugh!
Take bubble baths!
We should be passionate about each other
And life!
We should check things off our bucket list
Together.

Have me!
You won’t regret knowing me!
And when it comes time
That I can no longer inhale breath
I will feel healed from prior loss
I will feel loved
I will know and carry with me
That you recognized my worth
And I will rise above.

You will have lessons learned
On what are the most important things in life
On the brevity of it all
The fragility
And you will be stronger for knowing me
You will feel loved unconditionally
You will store my energy in your heart
Because I will leave it with you
When this body sets my spirit free

Have me for a little while
Til the lines take over and I’ll set u free
To go younger
But don’t let her be dumber

Remember me.

'You don't want to get mixed up with me. I'm a loner, Dottie. A Rebel.' Lol jk

I don't know what to say, except I have loved and respected your poetic art for years that you've influence my work, as well...I love the flow...the genuine feeling of Lonliness and yearning...and the realities of aging...but don't go quietly in the night, Coco. ;)

So beautifully written. I feel like this piece put me into a moment that slowed time down and could see everything around me happening in slow motion, allowing me to take it all in. Amazing.
