Is it too much to ask
For just once to be saved?
Just once can YOU chase after ME?
Or will I always have to push
To force everything
To fit in my little box of perfect?
To strain and scream and cry
Until I’m standing alone
Herding someone else’s butterflies
Too caught up in the why’s
To ask Why.
Because only one time will I
Be the damsel for you
Grab it quick
Before I cut the golden Locks
That flow down the side of my tower
And dye them
Black or Green or Burgundy
And stand in the moon and howl.

Robyn's Last Chance
"Too caught up in the why’s
To ask Why", my favorite thought-provoking line..

I really like this one Robyn. You wrote it quite well, right from the beginning to end I would change nothing. Thanks for sharing this posting with us.

All that is perfect
