Don’t Mind Me
tucked away in your perfect life
or at least what you tell yourself,
really it’s all for show, isn’t it?
you were in love before, so long
isn’t that the way the line goes?
forgive me if i miss my cue
little late getting the play in hand
as you walk with her under bright lights
to a movie, dinner, passing by that hotel
the one with all the orange doors
i hope you feel queasy and misplaced
want to always be the little lamb
planted at your table, making you feel bad
