Only Words
FEB (May 14,1953 / Pittsburgh, PA)

Only Words

painted lady laughing
longing for a ticket
to take a roller coaster ride
with memories of a
long lost lover
once aboard the
riverboat queen
who was swept
out to sea

she cries out
inaudible screams
hearing only words of
drunken sailors dreams
while twilight brings
her promise of
a new day all she feels
is loneliness and pain
