A Pity-Pillow So Comfy
Placed & Plumped Consolingly
It Is Plush & Puffed With Feeling Sad
and Sulking Sorrowfully
Upon Hues of Blue & Charcoal-Lead
I Heavily Lowered My Bowed Head
As My Pity-Pillow's Pushy-Perfume
Overwhelmed My Canopy Bed
Silken-Sorrow, It Softly Embraced
Trimmed In Night's Deep Shadow-Lace
My Pity-Pillow Took Teardrops' Taste
& Swallowed & Soaked - Every Toss-Turn-Trace
Oh, Pity-Pillow, Pathos-Filled
With Pain's Feathery Thoughts
You Have Plundered Every Pose & Peace! ...
Will Plumbed Depths of Sleep Not Be Caught?
Oh, Pity-Pillow ... Placate This Ill
You Make My Rest - A Bitter Pill !
I Close My Eyes, Only To See
My Sandcastle Dreams ... Spill ...
Still, It Gives Me Morbid Moments
To Indulge In My Misery
To Wail & Wallow & To Welcome
"Lord, Why Me?" and "Woe Is Me!"
Pity-Pillow of Memory Foam
Grasping "Got Cha'!" At Every Groan
Stacked To Decorate My Bed At Home
Since A Crushed-Velvet Spread Was Sewn
And Pity-Pillow's Pretty Case
My Face, Smoothly Covered
Muffled My Cries & My Sad Sighs
and My Life's Laughter, Smothered
and Blocks & Chokes Hope's Last Share
As Stranglehold's Strong! & Getting Somewhere
But Pity-Pillow's Pressure-Scare
Cannot Suffocate My Prayer's Air ...
Outside A Stormy, Half-Closed Window
Rain, Washed The Waves of Weeping Willows
As My Breath Pulsates In Sorrow-Billows
Over and On Past A Pity's Pillow ...
Yet, This Plumped & Prone To Pity, Pillow
Panders To and Pockets Me
Plush & Puffed With A Feeling Sad Story
and It Feels Good - Feeling Pretty Sorry
and If You Have Ever Felt Lain-Low
Upon The Pile of A Pity-Pillow
I Don't Even Have To Explain, You'll Know
How Hard It Is To Let Go
Oh, Pity-Pillow - Now Feel Dejected
For Tonight - You Will Be Rejected
and Stop Feeling Sorry For Yourself!
As Back You Go - To The Linen Shelf
- Watch Out! That's a pity-party, pillow-fight!
