another attempt at something I have little talent for

I know I said I wouldn't do this
but my mind's all skewed around.
You're in there, you know.

I guess I could try to write something
that sounds decent
and maybe means something.
The truth is
I don't want my name plastered on
the plagiarism most wanted list.

I'll just try to make this
as conversational as possible
without being terribly sappy.
You say you like sappy, though,
so would it help if I said that
I think about you constantly?
Does that sound too extreme?

I need to sort out what I'm thinking
and try to speak coherently.
And while I'm dreaming,
I'd like the rest of the world to make sense, too.

I don't know what this is
but I like it.
I hope you like it too,
and forgive my nervousness.
