Blue Velvet

In an upside down world, she wanders

Blue velvet sliding down her legs,

Riding up her stomach and chest

Waiting for the show she always renders

***

As baby waits, she sings

Strings pulling her up from the ceiling

Glitter pouring down her hair and face

Ain’t it always like this with flings?

***

Water runs on the floor

Tears dare not fall from her face

Desert storms cross her glare

And she watches, it closes, the door

***

Alone again

Blue velvet sways above her hips

Grinds her skin to dust

It was just a different man

***

The strings grab on to her waist

The blue velvet crushes under them

A breath of desperation loosens

Heartbreak is never truly faced

***

She is turned downside up

Blue velvet slides up her hips, stomach and face

Blue velvet hits the water, runnin’

Ain’t paradise, a dark irony?
