See me




I'm not here today. No really, I'm not. I'm here.



"All I know is that you’re so nice, you’re the nicest thing I’ve seen. I wish that we could give it a go, see if we could be something.

I wish I was your favourite girl. I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world. I wish my smile was your favourite kind of smile. I wish the way that I dressed was your favourite kind of style.

I wish you couldn’t figure me out — but you’d always want to know what I was about. I wish you’d hold my hand when I was upset. I wish you’d never forget the look on my face when we first met.

I wish you had a favourite beauty spot that you loved secretly, ’cause it was on a hidden bit that nobody else could see. Basically, I wish that you loved me. I wish that you needed me. I wish that you knew when I said two sugars, actually I meant three.

I wish that without me your heart would break. I wish that without me you’d be spending the rest of your nights awake. I wish that without me you couldn’t eat. I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep.

Look, all I know is that you’re the nicest thing I’ve ever seen. & I wish that we could see if we could be something. Yeah, I wish that we could see if we could be something."


--- Kate Nash, 'Nicest Thing'
