Carnival Ride

Carnival Ride

painting lines
detail woven
in all the lies

merry-go-round
this cyclical life
of gloss and loss

the future
left behind
now we rush

round and round
this anything but
merry, merry ride

let me off
peeling paint
plastered smile

my cheeks
are streaked
love, I’m weak

painting lies
detail woven
in all the lines
