-The Sand Castle Shovel and Pail-

so much love, I am just filled with love, I know nothing other
than my buckets of love
and it's just my luck, to be sitting here stuck, fading to fuck,
swimming lovestruck
Give it away, give it away, give it away, force it away
I don't want it inside to be alone and in hate
just the love and the one from which it comes
she is dried up and done, completely fed up
with having so much love
with being filled with love
to know nothing of
what it is to GIVE love
it just stays in myself
taken by no one else
worthless until, it has been freed and helped
oh so much, to hold and to touch
just buckets and buckets and buckets-
oh, fuck it,
I need a cigarette.
