I'm going Crazy for a boy I know
He hAtes me like I'm vermin, though
WhY do I have to love this guy?
Did he notice when I saved his life?
ThE way I feel is different than I ever felt before
No one ever suddenly just struck me to the core
Little he sees when I try to get his attention
HE doesn't notice my state of apprehension
When hE walks by my side
Forgetting him would kill me inside
SLowly I follow him across the room
Or simply laugh as he calls me at noon
Why can't he see that I'm the one
ThE one who can make him have the most fun
I could staRe at him for hours
I love a boy names CAYDEN LEE FLOWERS!
Can it be one thats already posted on the site?
sure you can just copy and paste it or something
Slender spindly legs
tiptoe across wispy webs
shimmering threads wave
Wind blows through the net
an iridescent ambush
It's an upset,
though not quite a fight.
A way to disagree,
and yet still keep things light
Nice people who differ in opinion
don't argue and tustle.
The most they would do
is have a kerfuffle.
The stroke of midnight chimes,
Sending maidens hastening for home,
Ruining their grand times
Making them lose their glass slippers
Perfect red lips lie still.
A fallen apple rolls to its side.
Breathless, she waits until
True love comes passing by
A voice that sings no more
Walks on pins and needles.
All for the desire of the shore
Rather than the depths of the sea.
Curiosity killed the Cheshire Cat
And dragged a young girl
Into the world of a madman in a hat
And wonders beyond sanity
A sharp needle points to the sky.
Its tip calling out for just a tap
A princess will readily comply,
Falling into a vengeful fairy's trap.
Anything can be the key
To a girl’s undoing
Even something as small as a pea.
They are the downfalls of Disney.
