I write head throbbing
In solid straights 5/8 time
My my my my all my love
Has shut their eyes Clean of me
you with dirty hands wipe my face
Longing for a sharp longing for
Feeling in my throat solid strings
Connected to those asleep half hearts
You look in my dreams like a handsome dealer
Why am I so attracted?? To a faint word.
Because then you then actually want me then right?
Because I am painted red. Head throbbing. Heart wanting. Eyes wet. And body warm
I will use your arms as a blanket even if they fall off.
Because I know I am ugly yet you make me want me to fly
Yet your flight for me imagined I am a whisper
Ignored and slighted and still and meek
I will fly away with my nonsense so you can find peace.
