Words like fireflies,
That flutter,
They flitter,
They dance 'round my head,
All covered,
In glitter,
I spin and I turn,
Reach out,
Try to grab them,
But I know it's too late,
They are out,
I can't have them,
Your face is all crumpled,
Like tissue,
It's broken,
I know it's my fault,
I needn't,
Have spoken,
But why should I handle,
My words,
Like a tiger,
Keep it up in a cage,
Hide away,
From the danger,
Shy away from your touch,
The touch,
Of a stranger.
