Wildness is EVERYWHERE!!!
I'm not gonna go on and on about it, but I just want to say...Clearly the apparatus that they're using to 'think' with is not functioning correctly. Maybe they need an extra one!!!......Brain, people!...I'm talking about their brains!...What are you thinking?! LOL Get your minds out of the gutter! ^_^ Okay....rant over!...Moving on!! :-]
I'm going to leave the mental chewing of those things to other people. I've got my own things I'm chewing on...so to speak. Like custom hats...
And while I've been slaving away on crochet hats, hubby has been slaving away at...okay, so he's just watching...his gardening.
He's been on a kind of morning stalking...as you can see, starting with the header photo. What has he been stalking?!
The poem today is more than 20 years old. It was during a time when hubby and I were doing some growing. Thankfully, we're tons of growth away from the sentiments of this poem now. Hopefully someone will get something positive out of it, or get some helpful insight.
I Need To Get Your Attention
I want, so much, not to need you,
and, when you're absent, not to fret;
But thats not me! I need attention.
But I don't feel you 'get it' yet.
No- you don't 'get it' yet!
Should I cook, and just smell pretty?
(That would please you-I just bet!)
But I don't gamble with my feelings,
and you're gonna get that yet.
Yea! You're gonna get it yet!
You say you don't know what I want;
And you act like we just met;
But I know that you have knowledge.
You just don't want to do it yet.
Why don't you want to do it yet?
Here's a few things you should know:
I'm not just like a household pet
that you can feed and leave for hours,
and wonder if I'm happy yet.
You Know that I'm not happy yet!
Maybe I should be a puppy;
At least you'd take me to the vet!
(Not like that trip we took to Paris-
that trip I haven't gone on yet.
No-I haven't gone on yet!)
I need to have you listen to me,
and not just tell you what to get.
I know you think I talk too much,
But you just haven't heard me yet.
No-You haven't heard me yet!
I try to have you look at me,
but you just stare in the T.V. set.
I fight commercials for attention,
but you still haven't got it yet.
Haven't got it?-no-not yet!
When you're stressed out, and I know it,
I try to be your safety net;
But when I'm stressed, and feeling anxious
I still don't think you've noticed yet.
Thats right!-You haven't noticed yet!
I ask you not to sit so quiet
When you're driving-you forget!
You force yourself to start a sentence
that you haven't finished yet.
No-You haven't finished it yet!
You want me to go back to work
so I can help you pay our debt.
But there's some debt that you're still oweing.
Attention to that's not being paid yet.
Sorry-You haven't paid it yet.
In exchange for trips and flowers
and flying to Paris in a jet,
I'd like to go 'back-road' sight-seeing,
But you haven't made time yet.
No-You haven't made time yet!
There's been no time for going swimming
(Only my eyes have gotten wet);
There's been no time for 'time together'.
You say: "Real soon. But just not yet".
But "Real soon" has not come yet!
We'd eat and sleep and sit in silence
and just have sex (thats if I let!);
But I need more, some real attention.
And thats why you don't get it yet.
Dear, what is it that you don't get yet?
You don't get that I've been lonely?
That I need my appetite whet?
That this just can't go on forever?
But you're bound to get it yet.
And, until then this bone won't set!
