There is Nothing You Can Do

Fiona Rosge's picture

The sunbeams, golden-yellow, cast shadows of thick iron bars,
they reach you, and your heart begings to beat faster,
little bird you flap your wings, small mind thinking that will make it barable
the sun burns the feathers from your flesh,
a smell that will never relinquish
And the housing complain
"That smell, there must be somthing you can do..."
"People will never move in under these conditions."
Oh yes, I smile your circus is straining.
You pull on my strings, I lift my hand, hand to mouth
Release the thought from my mind
The elephant man that stands on the ball,
the ugly pupet you laugh at,
the tight rope walker you beg to fall,
the lion tamer you wish to see excitment from,
what are you waiting for disembodied limbs?
And the men they besiege me to sleep with,
only coat me with sugar and lies
Yes, this is some sort of living
But there is nothing you can do,
To free yourself
Are you waiting to sleep on the street?
Oh yes, my dears, emerse yourself in that bottle of booze
And laugh and joke, those women, they are your property,
They are only there for you to stroke and hit,
People warn you, that look in there that says they hate you,
They are dissapointed, but you are amuned you do not see it
So thats it, flap your wings little bird
As if that will make it barable
The more women and booze you ingest the better,
right my friend?
Why don't you go sleep it off on the street corner,
They took your wallet really?
And you expect smypathy? I'm sorry but that shop is closed for the day.

Going up she goes up she goes
Balance yourself like a bird on a beam
In the air she goes there she goes
Up, up, a little bit higher
Oh, my, the moon is on fire
Good-by

xD I like it too. I was

xD I like it too. I was trying to figure out what it might be about, and I thought about Sandy.... hehe. But yeah, I trust that you know what you are talking about.

Did you meet your fortune teller?

NO

God no, you do not have to worry about that. I mean not that I havn't thought about it but if it went near there I doubt I would let that happen and besides Sandy seems very loyal to HER and I doubt he would do me anyway because of that. Tactless way to put that I know but what else could I say?
It was partly about life, cuz I was sad that day but mainly about Moulin Rouge.

It was a stab in the dark.

It was a stab in the dark. Sandy often comes to mind when I'm confused and thinking of you though. Don't really know what that says.

Moulin Rouge is good, I enjoyed that movie thoroughly. My friends made me feel bad when I didn't cry at the end though.

I don't really know what it

I don't really know what it says about me that whenever I'm confused about you I think about Sandy. That's what I meant.

And I still feel kind of bad for not crying at the end. I cried at the end of MILK to the point where I couldn't talk or almost breath, and I didn't cry at Moulin Rouge.

I dont know what that means

I dont know what that means either because he doesnt really matter, maybe I shouldn't have told you?

I havn't gotten the chance to see it yet. and the fact that you didn't cry at Moulin Rouge, well I guess it just didn't hit you but the storyline was somthing I wish I could have written, I love Nicole and the Come What May sceen, at his cheep apartment, was enough to wish I had like pictures of each frame that I could hang on my wall, thats how beautiful it is to me.

It's a part of your life and

It's a part of your life and I like to know about your life, the good and the bad. And if I can help you deal with him, I'd like to. I know that sometimes you enjoy his company and other times you dont'. I'm not really jealous of him except that he gets to see you and I don't, it's more of a location issue than anything else.

Yeah, I can do that. I

Yeah, I can do that. I really don't want to get you in trouble. So, if we can't talk long, I understand.
