Callused hands from holding to the monkey bars
Too long, too tight
Skinned knees from falling to the concrete
Just the same as my skinned heart from falling for you
Lips stained blue and stomach ache from cotton candy
Too sweet, too addicting
Cavities in my teeth from all the sweets
Just the same as the cavities in my heart from your sugary kiss.
Overalls stained from playing in the mud
Too messy, too dirty
Brown water from cleaning away the day’s filth
Just the same as the water from my heart washing you away.
