I Wish I Liked Green Bananas And Black Coffee

A poem mourning my constant need for more.

I Wish I Liked Green Bananas And Black Coffee

I wish I liked green bananas and black coffee

I wish I was okay with a world in which you could live without me.

I wish I liked nights so cloudy I cannot see the stars.

I wish, oh I wish, I loved things the way they are.

I'm waiting, always waiting, for my days to grow ripe.

Or for sugar to sweeten my life, pull me towards the lighter type.

I dream of you on the stage, carrying on the show.

I wish I dreamed of simpler things, like waking up to February snow.

I wish I dreamed of lazy days, a stretch, or a yawn.

Such ordinary, perfect things, to which I can count on.

I wish all these things could be good enough for me.

Maybe the simple gratitudes are what make us truly free.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
