language

by damommza & sunovawot

when “breaking-up” or “breaking-down”
do people really break?
like eggshells smashed in tiny bits
can there be no re-make?

do broken hearts leave a jagged edge
that cannot be smoothed down
but will be worn, in blackest night
a bleeding, ruby crown

if you must choose but find you’re torn
and there is no escape
to hold you tight til you decide
there’s nothing like duct tape

and are “migraines” really “your” grains
why has the flu not flown?
does the little “sty” outside your eye
really give a pig a home?

how is it I am “losing” hair
when I know it’s down the drain
and will I need a massive net
if I want to catch a train

and if I say I’m standing up
when I’m sat in a chair
it really begs the question
am I truly lying there

I often have such vagrant thoughts
how does a language grow?
the question may be gripping but
am I really “dying” to know
