Playing House

eventually i’ll tell you,

but can we just play pretend a little longer?

because in this game we’re going

somewhere wonderful,

somewhere down a rabbit hole,

and i’m the queen of hearts

it’ll be the most fun we’ve ever had,

if I could even begin to tell you.

but the words are stuck at the top of my mouth like peanut butter,

and i’m too queasy to wash them down with milk.

This is love, big time.

i’ve never felt so flustered.

i’ve never felt so awestruck.

you make it feel like the world is a playground,

and the sky is a trampoline.

i’m totally turned upside-down around you.

My skirt is over my head and i’m giggling

because i like the way the world looks from here.

ps. If you’re listening, and I hope you are, I just wanted to say, that minute I spent with you was the most fun I’ve had all day.
