on my feet

I'm on the phone
with my girlfriend
and we laugh
at you
and every stupid thing you said
and did today.

while I'm on the phone,
I have a set of markers next to me.
can't you see
I'm drawing on my feet.


on my feet are
broken hearts
and children singing.
on my feet are
squiggles trying
to find a new home.
on my feet are
your words hugging mine
and your love wrapped
around my toes.

when i'm going off to school
i make sure no one can see
my feet
because

on my feet are
broken hearts
and children singing.
on my feet are
squiggles trying
to find a new home.
on my feet are
your words hugging mine
and your love wrapped
around my toes.

I'm sitting on the beach
with you
wearing flip flops
and holding your hand
and you see

on my feet are
broken hearts
and children singing.
on my feet are
squiggles trying
to find a new home.
on my feet are
your words hugging mine
and your love wrapped
around my toes.

i take your hand,
marker in mine.
and guess what i draw...
