Out of Order

Photo by Jesus In Taiwan on Unsplash

fun house mirror
cotton candy sweet
a game, a laugh,
a ride, a treat
stars revolving
too bright, too quick
canned music plays
sweet turns to sick
i hold my ticket
tight in my hand
i don’t know how
don’t understand
how the brightest love
could turn to dust
an out of order sign
on the two of us
you were my fun house mirror
cotton candy sweet
i was a summer dress
swept off my feet
too bright, too quick
you took my breath
you took my love
there’s nothing left
but the stars above
the ticket in my fist
this proof of love
the warmth of our last kiss
the lights too bright
the night too long
i turn to the mirror
but you are gone.
