I do(n't) want him near me

by Steffje   May 22, 2007

He chases me in my
Black and white dress
I don't want him near me
Because I'm such a mess

But he follows me
Me and my sorrows
I'm running faster
But still he follows

My make-up's running
Down my face
But I keep running
From his embrace

He's too fast
and catches me by
I'm screaming out loud
"I want to die! "

He holds me in my
Black and white dress
I do want him near me
So I'll cry less and less

    I was looking for a poem to read and the title of this one really caught my eye. Really clever idea, I like the repetition of the "I do/don't want him near me." Very effective.
