Come On
Author: Ashlee


All i want,
all i need,
is for you to grow up
for you to come clean

I shake you,
you break me,
but you still won't wake up
to this reality

I scream inside
and whisper to you,
but your ears fall deaf
to the words i speak

Listen a little closer,
take a second look
i don't lie,
i don't cover up my tracks

The biggest, best
thing is right in front of you
wake up

I'm screaming now,
i'm shaking now
open up and see

We could be like
the mister and missus,
we could dream together,
plan together,
fall together,
grow together

Why can't you see it
why can't you feel it
why can't you hear it now

I'm beginning to break
i can't take it anymore

Maybe when my sliced
edges fall upon your tender
you'll realize,
finally realize
what you could've, should've

held onto

Come on brother

Ashlee, you want him to wake up and smell the waffles, and the hot cocoa! He'll come around sooner or later, and say, "Oh man, why did I wait so long?"! The perfect poem Ashlee!

Smiley face,
