A lopsided grin and beady eyes

The world lives right in her palm

Voiceless she spins the magic wand

And it's day, and it's light.

Would you teach me how?

"I could have swept you away

If you weren't so strong."

Without a word

She walked on water

Like the prophet

Silent and weightless.

"And I thought

Your mind would weigh you down."

There are voices in my head

And I'm just about done listening.
