Watch Me

by Ivy Rozen 2 years ago in heartbreak
Report Story

one woman show

Want to watch me break?

Pushing all my friends away?

Want to watch me play?

Let's keep playing all day

Let's keep on playing pretend

Watch me dance for you

I'll twirl and sing for my dear friend

What do I mean to you?

Take a bow right at the end

I search the crowd for you

Audience of stuffed animals

And an empty seat for you

Want to watch me break?

There’s no one here but us

Why not sit? Just stay

Just say what to adjust!

How can I be what you want to see?

How can I be what you want?

Fix my act, stop singing off key

How can this show go on?

Do you want to watch me break?

You were all I had

One woman show, I perform for just me

For a mirror in the crowd, cracked

heartbreak
