I WANT TO BE A ROCK CHICK (new poem)

I WANT TO BE A ROCK CHICK
Oh boy that’s going to make you sick
But hey this chic wants to be slick
So my jeans are ripped
At least I’m zipped 
Can you not hear the beat?
The rhythm and the heat
It’s screaming out loud
It has you on your feet
Prancing and dancing
Without a second glance or glancing 
The mumbo jumbo
This is my destiny
And not so quietly
This has been creeping and crawling
With the swiftest of tides
With the swiftest of waves
Oh boy I cannot change this destiny
It’s up to you
Dance along with me
Or we separate separately
This has captured me
Completely
I need to feel the freedom
Of this destiny
I don’t want to walk away from you
I want you to walk with me
Till the end, till the end
I feel you deeply
Your passion
Your magic
You’re my passion
The division, derision
Is driving me insane
This empty space
This empty home
Can we find away?
I don’t care how long it takes
You’re my life and soul
My life would be filled with darkness
You’re the one who brings the lightness
Come and walk with me
Stay and be my heavens above
Stay and be mine, mine
Let me be so, so close to you
Come and be my lifting me off the ground
Where there is no sound 
Come and help me not miss a beat
Oh baby, oh baby
Let’s get this rhythm back!
Let’s get it right
Let’s shine it all through the night
Day and night
I know what you are thinking
I see you blinking
But hey!
You said “You are my every-thing!”
Oh boy I can never, never do anything without you!
I have been by your side
Residing day by day
Night after night
Never leaving your highest place
Your success, I lived through them
And here I am on the cusp
So very alone
And not wanting to be
Be here, be there
For me!
Loving you, loving me
Don’t set me free
I’m not being obsessive
Possessive
I just need you by my side
With all your love and support
Laughing, crying
Screaming, hollering 
All the way to the top
With a one way stop
Oh boy, oh boy
Never ever forget
It works both ways
