Opened And Closed


Picture a porcelain frog on crack

That's me and my silly ass

The moment I crush your soul

__you will laugh

Down the road

__crushing vitamins

____to snort

For all that it's worth

My only desire

__is to demolish any thought

____that you might have

And to make your ass dance

You aren't the most stunning

__of all promises

But you sure do give me the giggles

Maybe it's your funny face

You know?

The one you keep in a bag

__by a door

____that is constantly swinging

______opened and closed

Thee amount of promises

__that I can't keep

Just seem to pile up


____to the sky

Ask me not

__why I bask in the silliness

But only why I never know


If you see my mind start to wander

Only the truth can have the power

__to slap the be-Jesus out of me

But if I am willing

I just may change

Just not very much

I'm not addicted to growth

But this feeling I have inside me

__for you

Is all I can promise will stay the same

Until you burn me

Like they always do

But if you are different

Maybe you can end my singlehood

__by giving me you

And only you


__who else could I want

____after I have fallen for you?
