    I know you once thought
    about hanging me
    around your neck
    I know you thought
    you could not cope
    and I wish that
    in that moment
    I could wrap
    myself around
    your eyes instead
    like a blindfold
    so that the cold
    world would just be a daze

    I see you gaze at my colours
    my heart was a withering rose
    maybe if you learned
    the names of these flowers
    I would not feel so unimportant

    I know I am as soft as a cotton ball
    I cannot easily tear and I smell
    just like your Jean Paul Gaultier

    Remember when you had that
    open wound and you used me
    to put pressure on it
    and remember when I
    soaked up all the blood
    the red blent beautifully
    with my colours
    but you washed it all out

    when I saw you today
    your lips were
    the colour of the sky
    It seemed as though
    you forgot
    I was in the in the room
    waiting for you to notice me
    waiting for you to
    pick me up
    and wrap you
    in me
    like a newborn
