Out of Rhythm



Lines 3, 5, 8, 10, and 11 have to be read in an uptempo rhythm.  It’s really more like a song:)


If you please….
Come to me…
Light upon my finger….
And you’ll see…
Glorious sights up in the air…
Just like that star
Right over there….
Flavored like the sparkles
In your hair…
While I stay resting in my chair….
Fearful of even the slightest dare..
Afraid to sleep….
Afraid to share….
Afraid to touch….
Afraid to care….
All I do is sit and stare….
