"Lord, what fools these mortals be."






-Puck (Robin Goodfellow), A Midsummer Night's Dream


Your eyes darken
And then the tears fall…

They fall
like the oceans we always wanted to see

They fall
Just like the rivers we use to play at

They fall like the sweat teas you would serve to me and my dolls
They fall like there is no stopping them
They fall like there is no end
They fall
And fall
And fall
Fall
Fall
Fall


And then they fall some more

But then you wipe your tears
You think about how much easier it will be without me

You smile
Drop the gun
Pickup my dolly
And walk away
