Wave me numb, wave me a crumb

Wave me numb, wave me a crumb

 

She waves her hand at the past

This again wasn’t meant to last

The hand like the smile steadfast

While iron on her soul was cast

≈ 

She waves the arms so weary

From lost potential now dreary

Stubborn stint of a will so eerie

Willing a while the heart teary

≈ 

She waves off memories’ foam

On her mind too ready to roam

The heart dies without a home

Gnarled or skulking as a gnome

≈ 

She waves to a crowd’s merry

On the deck of a passing ferry

To light of a sun kissed cherry

To the promises of strawberry

≈ 

She waves away all past grief

As spring turns her a new leaf

Into her heart’s den crept thief

Stealing sorrow bringing relief

≈ 

She waves to the end of numb

To his heat she shall succumb

Tingling pressure of his thumb

Wiping off lips a cake’s crumb
