This Song

by remembertoexhale

Just a floating entity
swept up in riff raff
and the glamorization thereof
walking taller among the teetering heels
and my fingers shake
and my chest throbs
and my back hurts
and I am unsure of how tall I stand
my ten buck tennis shoes don’t give much support
but neither do my leather oxfords
sometimes love has all the right ingredients
and no one to mix them
God, I could have loved you with my whole
heart all of me
Just a floating entity
independent of any identity
but every time you speak to me
you have me on my knees
and all I need is just one kiss
if you would be so kind as to give me this
I could tell if we would be a hit or a miss
then I would be able to move along
and I wouldn’t need to sing this song
