Easy to forget the important things, huh? Brother's birthday, French verb forms, doctor's appointments, the oven you left on. So why can't I forget the color of nail polish I was wearing? Can't forget my cherry earrings, how one of my socks was white and the other was cream (some unimportant Thursday.) I remember the eye color of every person I've ever liked all the words to camp songs, insurance jingles, plot points of "Grey's Anatomy," season 8, who sat next to me our last dinner in Galway, the worst thing my mother has ever said to me. Things that don't matter anymore. Things that never mattered. Things I'd like to forget. Things I'd quickly replace with the equation of a parabola, or the molecular weight of water.
When the sun goes out all will be ice The cold sucks away good times Not even a simple fire would suffice The cold is full of crimes Your heart slowly turns stone cold Removing any emotion There is no survival here you are told But that can change like the waves in the ocean
I cast spells and I lead chants. The god and goddess look upon me and hear me and I kiss them with lips of crystal and sage. I banish spirits and read eyes and lips like tarot cards. I carry the pentagram upon my chest and no, I won't tuck it away because it's not what you think it is. It's the symbol that keeps us connected, that protects us, that reminds us to respect our earth and our sisters. I am a witch and I will say it again and again more unironically than ever.
I'm a daydreamer, My head is stuck in the clouds. I'm a daydreamer, My feet never on the ground. I'm a daydreamer, In a world of my own. I'm a daydreamer, Sometimes I am completely alone. I'm a daydreamer, Creating a better world than the one I live in. I'm a daydreamer, Wishing it will become a reality. I'm a daydreamer, Filling my head with things that will never come true. I'm a daydreamer, Seemingly dreaming my whole life through. I'm a daydreamer, Dreaming is what lets me escape this chaotic, mean world. I'm a day dreamer, Even though I know my daydreams will never become reality.
