Ring a ring a rosie
Don’t get so cozy. A tissue. A tissue ? You’ll want one soon.
That’s me dancing rings around you.
Oh you think you’re so clever?
You got me. You got me. You get me ?
Nah uh silly rabbit.
You’re no brain for this mighty chain.
I know, I know you liked me at first
Your intentions were good ?
Not good enough my sweet.
To the middle where you belong
Sing your song. The one you sing to us all
But I won’t fall. For it. For you. Forever.
I see the workings of your selfish heart
Written all over your gormless face
Different girl. Different place.Getting away with it again ?
Not this time. Not this chump.
Different type of human here.
You’re in my circle now
And you’re all alone.
Blue is our colour
Pools of sapphire that light up your face
And my day.
Your soft cerulean jumper.
That I long to touch but never do.
The azure oceans where one day we might swim
But probably never will.
The kind of movie our lovemaking would inspire
Set the world on fire
Put out with my indigo tears.
Yes it’s definitely our colour
And it’s certainly mine
That glacial feeling
When I have to leave
The colour of a dying heart on my sleeve.
Remember: We’re all just a bunch of naked people running around in clothes.
I found you at last
In the most unexpected of places
Slowly. Slowly. Do you feel it too?
I think you do.
I see it in your eyes.
Those pools of blue.
But mine are dark and I don’t know if I should pull you in
To swim. To swim.
You know the depths of me.
The salt and fresh water that flow in my sea.
But what about yours?
Where are your ripples?
Or are you riptide?
And I’m the one being dragged in.
Hold this bag of bones
This sack of twisting, writhing nerves
Squeeze the fear out of me
Or hold it in.
I am a messy friend today
I will cry and laugh at the same time
I will jangle in the skin I’m in
Rattle and shake
Wet like a lake
My depths know no bounds
The bottom of me is murky
I can’t get away with quirky
Hold me please. Restrain me
Otherwise I will
Why can’t you just be cheery
When I’m feeling so damn down
Couldn’t you just pick me up?
Instead you tie lead weights to my ankles
And wait for me to drown.
You wait until I’m rock bottom
Then dredge the silt so I can fall further.
Why can’t you be a balloon ?
