I Dream of One Day
of escaping while you sleep
I close my eyes and beg to dream…
then you open my eyes just to close them shut
smiling at me with that bucktoothed smut
twisting the knife, calling me slut…
Will I ever have anything better?
Could there ever be anything better?
forever fluid, would you ever stay?
through my veins
verbiage could never be solid.
The candor you spoke with was never that honest.
Your beautiful soul was never quite flawless.
Forever the river in my fever dreams
Swelling ‘til they burst
At the seams.
