say goodnight and kiss me.

my name is chelsea.
I like to change my layout too often.
Sometimes I make people dizzy.


tell when I can open my eyes
tell me when it's safe to look
I see the the fabric of my coat
weaving in and out
in and out
can you follow the lines with your eyes
it's a symphony with two notes
one for me
and one for you
we dance above each other
dip and dive
rise and fall
we collide and make one note
we'll sing it through to the end
then, we'll climb off stage and into our graves
we'll sleep for a long time
"as I lay me down to sleep..."
and dream of daffodils and robins
of red ribbons and watermelon juice
and smell the grass
above us
till our eyes forget how to open
and we forget how the symphony goes
till we just hum along
till we become the ground we lie in
