Used

Published January 15, 2015 by Naomi Rettig

Lyrically challenged I lie in bed
Thoughts of you are clouding my head.
I want to tell you how I feel
But to you I’m no big deal.
I want to hold you every night
Safe and warm and snuggled up tight,
To your every need I’d tend
But to you I’m just a friend.
A friend who’s there for you when you call
Someone to talk to when you fall,
Someone to sleep with when you’re bored
Inbetween girls or else ignored.
I guess I’m hoping you’ll fall for me
Open your eyes and really see
How special I am, loving and true
Here all the time, waiting for you.
Deep down I know the reality
I’ll stay a doormat while you use me,
Then one day when you meet ‘the one’
Our friendship will end, finished, done.

Thinking of You

Published January 15, 2015 by Naomi Rettig

Thinking of you makes my heart flutter,
Makes me walk into walls and act like a nutter.
Thinking of you is a wonderful way
To make me smiley and happy all day.

Thinking of you makes my tummy turn over,
You’re a luckier find than a four leaf clover.
Thinking of you makes the sun shine brighter
And fluffy white clouds seem much whiter.

Thinking of you makes me drift away
To deep blue sea and a golden bay.
Thinking of you makes me want you so much,
I long for a kiss and your tender touch.

Hoping

You make me smile and brighten my day,
Turn my world silver instead of grey.
I dream of holding you close and tight,
Thinking of you makes my world alright.

We’ve not met, yet my feelings are strong,
What if we meet and it all goes wrong,
Maybe the magic will disappear,
You won’t find me attractive I fear.

I’ve got hopes high and fingers crossed
That my love for you will not be lost
And when we meet we get on great
Finding, at last, my true soul mate.

The One

I want to tell you how I feel
But I’m scared you’ll run away,
I long to hold you in my arms,
In a long embrace we’ll stay.

I’ve admired you from a distance
Smiling at you from afar,
In the dark night sky of my life
You are my shimmering star.

I smile so much thinking of you
And feel a warm glow inside,
It would make my life so complete
With you right here by my side.

Slimming

Published January 15, 2015 by Naomi Rettig

O let me wake up nice and slim
It is my goal to be so trim,
I’d like to have no cellulite,
This alas not my only plight.
I’d like to be four sizes smaller
Or at least two foot taller.
I want to wear a skimpy thong
Without it looking oh so wrong.
I want to have more get up and go
Not a backache that screams ‘oh no’.
I need to make these few stones budge
And invent a fruit that tastes like fudge!

Patterns in my bath

Published January 15, 2015 by Naomi Rettig

The patterns in my bath
Look like a leopard,
All mottled and swirly
Like a drunken shepherd.
If I move my legs
A tiger appears,
Straighter and stripy
As if you’ve had less beers.
It all merges together
When I go under,
Like a flock of flamingos
Hiding from thunder,
But when I get out
(Now this bit sounds mad)
I look below me
And there’s a map of Baghdad.
