My teeth are getting crooked
they are much too sweet.
Probably from
all the chocolate I eat.

My crooked teeth miss
you and your delicious words
that,
my crooked teeth
and my skin absorbed.

But now I don't taste it
my crooked teeth turn'd sour.
Lick my lips, I'm searching
for the hour. When
that baby boy was mine.
And he sang a lullaby
Oh crooner, sing a lullaby.
Lull me to sleep
so I won't notice when,
dawn creeps you
good-bye.

I quite like this. It's different, and I like that you incorporated taste in place of where I thought I would find old age. Wonderfully intruiging.
