Buttons & Thread

It's a world of pants and shirts It's a world where whatever you say doesn't matter.. It's a world where you can try to change but why do so? It's a world where whatever you say gets interrupted by no you can't do... It's a world where you can choose not to say but people will say you practice voodoo.. It's a world of skirts and dresses It's a world where you go around in circles and might as well fall.. It's a world where your scars can be seen but no one asks how have you been.. It's a world where a piece of fabric is torn, as someone unintentionally ripped you open.. It's a world where you can choose to live alone but people will say you are broken.. It's a world of buttons and thread after all What you want isn't what you found wide spread .. When you want to leave, nobody wants you to.. But when you don't, people just skin you thin.. Like the pin that pierces the button.. While the button gets strapped even though it'

Dressed Up

I dressed up
For a party..
That I won't be going
I messed
The make up
For a party
That I won't be going
I troubled myself
To get ready
But who am I kidding
I fumbled through the drawer
To pick the right color shade
But there's something lacking
I fixed my hair
Like a messy bun
But I couldn't find the hairpins
Why can't I just put on my slippers
For the party..
But everyone will be looking
I can't tell my best friend
That I had a fight earlier
She will tell her friend and I don't know
Who else does her friend talks to
I keep walking in my underwear
But now that I am thinking
I shouldn't overdo
If I want to cry should keep crying
I remembered that I promise to come
For the party..
That I won't be going
Why did I do so
Why couldn't anyone ask me not to do that
Just then my phone had a picture of my friend
She looked drop dead gorgeous
While I looked at the mirror
And seem unconscious
Where did the magic go
I know I can wash off and change
But I went to sleep instead
I called her up
And lied my reasons
For the party
That I won't be going
I came up with three
I blurted them out as they were free
On the other end 
I could sense pity
But I didn't call to sound witty
The lights went dimmer
I wished I looked slimmer
I will eat lesser from tomorrow
I covered up
closed my eyes as
I found myself dressed up
In red
Looking absolutely lean and well fed
Although my wings
Tossed me in circles
I was lost and found with star twinkles
Until my magic unwrapped 
Me asleep deep in a blanket 
Filled with wrinkles..
The dream wasn't bad
So I let it go on with chuckles
At least I had a party
Where I was glad I had dressed up
Even though I hexed up
I wasn't obsessed
To nuances
That leads to obscurity..
