The red only blooms on the paper for
a little bit
It's okay
The soft sore hills only hurt for a little bit
The sting in your skin goes away in
a little bit
And you'll wake up tomorrow
Just a little bit
Lighter

You can only feel the pain for a little bit
It's okay
A calorie only sticks for a little bit
You can sip on this water for a little bit
And you'll feel like bones and feathers
Just a little bit
Smaller

The salt stings your cheeks for a little bit
It's okay
You'll wipe them away in a little bit
You'll soak your shirtsleeves in a little bit
And you'll splash cold water against
your eyes
Just a little bit
Emptier
