:: Yellow Tulip by David Grim ::

I'm spinning,
spinning in this
Yellow drain
Draining my - anxiety
Ferns, Fauns, Falling like
Flies
In my mind I realize
We are finally
Alone

I'm drowning, drowning - in this
Yellow Drain
Is this your hand I'm holding
Love, Limes, it's all like
Life
Sometimes I wish I were alive
Are we finally
Alone

I'm loving, loving - this
Tulip's Bliss
Blissfully - draining the juice
Peaches, Plums, they're all
Deceptive
Inside I am really not
All that hard
Really

I'm lifting,
lifting off
My stiff mask
Able to laugh with others
Pits, Pills, Peeling away
Pride
Don't depend on narcotics
I always hated
To Depend

I'm hurting, now enjoying - afraid
I'll learn
It's all the same, all the same
Tragic Tears Tear into
Me
This is the strangest hypocrosy
Estranging me

I'm holding, holding your Tulip
Crimson tulip
Oh what a world you've saved for me
I can't believe I'm happy being myself
Say it again, you want to be with me?
Is everyone else out of the way?
Must I drive my stake so hard into my claim?

I can't believe the words "I Love You"
Would ever come from you - sweet thing
