bubblegum heart

bubblegum heart

popping again

sweet to the bone

until it tastes bland

like a bitter stone

.

bubblegum heart

stretch me out

sugar against enamel

chew out the pink

and blow me up

.

bubblegum heart

are your jaws getting tired?

of all the senseless natter

wasted efforts partaken

over such a saccharine matter

.

bubblegum heart

i’ll get stuck in your teeth

you can stick me under your desk

but you won’t get rid of

the nasty cavities.

Halfway

If I painfully stretched my own dislocated hand

To the navy welkin, amidst those lacy clouds

Would you also reach down softly from above

Just to touch my quivering fingertips, my love?

.

For we’ve never crossed tossed wayward paths

In the middle of Gaia, waiting, lost here on Earth

And Fate has tested us, tasted us its dark wrath

One ended up flying, another ended up under dirt

.

If I stretched my bleeding bruised hand, love, then

Or you relaxed your own tender hand, like a rosy fell

Will you wish to pull me up to your sweetest Heaven

Or will I have to drag you down to my bleak torturous Hell?
