Just Me.

Stuck between goodbyes and her own limitations.
Hides behind an armor of wit and clouds of smoke,
She wants to see a circus with fairy lights and distant cries,
heard above the roller coasters.
Jump on the merry go-round and let the sky rip open,
blowing kisses to the ground.
What happened to the girl with fishnet stockings and a smile?
Well, she became an inch taller,
with high heels and
wore a frown.
