The Good, The Bad, and The Lovely |
by Ivan Jenson

I want to show you
how wrong and right,
light and dark you are
then you will see that
I too am hard and soft
simple and complex
living and dying
then we can love and hate
give and take from each other
and spend our lives hiding
and seeking
holding on and letting go of
what we have found and
will surely lose
today or tomorrow
depending on
how naughty or nice
you are
my everything
until you are
nothing at all
