You found me
just around the corner
from utter boredom.

So stay a little longer,
keep challenging my wits
that seem to have been buried
under too many obligations.

Keep pressing for my truth
that obviously is too
uncomfortable for anyone but you.

Unchain my special voice
that has become a bit rusty
as I barely use it anymore.

Be my rude awakening
from the same old same old
that has outranked fun
for a long time now.

Unpack some recklessness
from your bag of tricks,
it might just tip the scales
in your favour.

Stay a little longer,
I kind of like this
power play where
nothing ever is simple.
