You Are On My Wish List - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You could not have known,
You are on my wish list.
If you had,
You would have made it,
More of a game...
By a playing of hard to get.

And I would not have given up easily either.
You would have thought me obnoxious.
And stopped your daily assessments,
With your making sure that I notice...
Whenever I am in your presence,
To be inspected.

You are not the only one,
Who knows what they want.
And how to go about getting it.
