I carry your shoes with me(I carry them in my bag)
I am never without them(anywhere I go they go, your stilettos; and wherever I walk is done by your shoes, my darling)
I fear no shoe(for they are your shoes, my sweet)
I want no flats (for heels you are my world, my true) and you are whatever a wedge has always impersonated and whatever a pump will always wish to be is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows(here is the heel of the heel and the toe of the toe and the foot of the foot of a shoe called Jimmy Choo; which makes you higher that your soul can hope or mind can create)and this is the wonder that is keeping us apart

I carry your shoes(I carry them in my bag)
