Aa Harvey





If you’ve got to shine, then shine your light on me;

If you’ve got to love, then love me.

If you’ve got to have a life, the live it with me;

If you’ve got to have a dream, then dream of me.



If you think you can make it, then make it with me;

If you really need it, then I need you to need me.

If you want to be with somebody, then be with me;

If you want my emotional honesty, then be honest with me.



If you need to hurt me, then don’t expect to be hurt by me;

If you feel like I don’t deserve you, then you don’t deserve to have me.

If you want to lose me and find someone else, then you will lose me;

If you need to get away to feel free, then you are free to leave.



If you want a real love, then you have to really love me;

If you want me to write about you, then you need to inspire me.

If you are a wrecking ball who destroys love, then you will destroy me.

If you want to be loved and treated properly,

Then treat me with your real love and we will always be happy.

          Thanx. This poem is simple in its essence, but it I think it works well. I've just written another poem about love that I think is good and will be posting it tomorrow. It's called 'You're not even.'
