Two Good Heads...

I know
 you not
I know
 you not,
you don't care
to know me.

You detest me;
You resist me;
you abhor me.
you avoid me.

You want
 to know me?
I'll strive
to know you better;
I would love you.

Are you
 in isolation?
Are you
 in solitude?
Do you need
 my companionship?
Do you need
 my friendship?
Then I would give you companionship.
I would give
you friendship,
Because two good heads
are better than one.

Loneliness leads
to temptation.
