Cotton Candy On A Windy Day

You explain your thoughts away.
Like cotton candy on a windy day
As your adventures never seem to end.
Talk of riding roller coasters straight to 
heaven and then back again.

You say your're an angel incarnate disguise.
Though you never say how you know this.
Your're always wanting to sit by the sea.
You say, it's to wait for your lover , And 
Your're most definitely sure it's not me.

You take me on rides I've never been before.
I know I could get off your merry go round.
If I so choose to, not sure that I want to.
You show me so many possibilities of me.
Your world seems brighter and clearer.

Though I watch you slit your wrist.
As you let the blood run free.
And I do nothing to stop you.
Only because you want to be set free.

    first she gets high on the roller coaster then goes south as a lover. cotton your candy truly is the tumble weed of the fair. you don't know where its been and don't know where it's going.

    Didn't call 911 or apply pressure?..Great expressive and emotive work..Thanks for the visit to my work..Yes, the more I know about what is in food the less I want to eat boxed and ready made..Jello is made from something that comes out of animal bones maybe when it is cooked..I know when I boil a chicken there is part that will congeal and well as when I bake a ham,etc..That is what is used but I am sure it comes from the cheapest source that the manufacturer can get..I just had cereal well.Sara

    Not sure what to make of this. Sometimes, the signs are not so obvious. The dark side of things is always interesting.
