Doll in Wonderland

Projection

I didn't see 

That you were there, hiding beneath

The white sheet I so carefully hung

To project my love onto

Like watercolors on canvas

Colors bleed into me 

Hope dancing before my eyes

On the screen of my own making 

You wrapped my sheet around yourself

Save and warm and dry

And I didn't see 

How empty your heart really was

All take and no give

All you project are shadows and darkness

And when you took enough from me

You threw the sheet on the ground

And the reel ran out of film

When you left I cried.
