Both Directions At Once

Attention, Attention..

Visibility is low due to cloud cover,

Will the passengers please remain seated,

We may experience some turbulence..

Pulling her close to keep her safe,

Pushing her away to keep her safe from you.

The more you fiddle with it the more tangled up it becomes,

Never was much good with knots.

Want them to be happy.

Wish it wouldn't work.

Pray it never happens.

She said good looked pretty on his spirit,

It's a shame it didn't fit.

It's true that passion burns,

It lights the fuse,

Now watch your loves, cares, wants and needs slowly detonate.

Stomach is in knots but that's because you never eat.

Head is in pieces but that's because you've lost your grip.

It's a shame the shelf life of these masks is so short, don't you agree?

Of course you do, you're just like me.

'She said good looked pretty on his spirit, It's a shame it didn't fit.' I experienced a physical aching when I read that line. The swift transition between 'awe' and 'ouch' is delivered potently. Well done!
