It's a mistake

What do you see
when you look at me?
You see a need
You see a wound that bleeds

Something somber
My sad smile suggests
You'd like to have a heart
So you reach right into my chest

What do you see
when you look to me?
You see a need
You see a place to feed

This sadness I wear
like it was a mask
Is just a wide-open
window to my past
You feel the hunger
You know your task
How long you've waited
Now you break your fast

What do you see?
Look at my face.
Tell me it's me
and not just a taste,

my love.

a piña colada at Trader Vic's

my hair will be perfect
