State

I’m sorry I forgot to tell you.
It must have slipped my mind.
I didn’t mean to be unkind,
but sometimes, well…
a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do
and if this doesn’t include you… well…
I have an urge to feel secure and safe
and that can be a once-in-a-lifetime chance at happiness.
Did I tell you I had it once? I blew it; threw it – blew him away.
And if it comes along again… well…
I’ve gotta grab it –
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that.
Once again, I apologise.
No, they were not lies.
I just didn’t give you a taste of my current state of mind;
the state of which, I shouldn’t need to state,
changes from day to day.
I’m getting myself into a state… well…
I’m leaving the States to be united with the one
who can hold me close with a single word;
cocoon me in a blanket of soft utterances;
keep me safe and warm until I’m ready to open up
and be the butterfly I’m meant to be.
And… well…
He bought me a diamond ring, my friend –
and it made me feel alright.
