Ballad of my Love for You
My dear, today in English class
You turned your lovely head.
Your eyes met mine; I surely felt
My heart would be stopped dead.
The other kids, they laugh and jeer,
They are so cruel to me.
But you don't say those nasty things,
With you I'd rather be.
Shall I write this with trembling hands?
Reveal my secret love?
I'll say to you the things I feel,
My heart, you will know of.
I'll write this note for you alone,
My crush, for you to see;
I'll tell you of these things I love,
Together we should be.
Your eyes, they are so beautiful,
I want them in a jar.
Cut out with my ball-point pen, I'd
Always know where they are.
Your skin, so soft and gorgeous fair,
I long for its caress…
I'd love to feel your soft, soft skin,
Made into a new dress.
Your white teeth will my jewelry be,
So jealous are the girls,
Red in the face, they'll see your bone,
The brooch in my long curls.
Inside my head there are voices,
They tell me what to do.
They whisper "scratch,” and “burn," and "kill,"
But when they speak of you.
I have few friends at school lately,
Since I ripped out Jen's hair.
But of all those that I would kill,
My crush, you I would spare.
I know they call me crazy, dear,
And maybe it is true.
But if they're right and I am mad,
Know it's because of you.
Let's take the world by storm, my dear.
What has our love to hide?
I’m Harley to your Joker, Love,
I’m Bonnie to your Clyde.
So join me, ride the flying bear!
Your head, he floats above.
The voices say that's what happens
When crazies fall in love....
