Mimi - Mona Poetry: You Could Have Been My Electric Toothbrush And Made My World Spin

Wish I was your portable vacuum
so I could breathe in all of you,
but I heard that you fell out of love
or near enough...that was tough

Wish I was the portable heater
making you hot in your basement bedroom,
but I understand I was too patient
for your urgent manly needs...indeed

And all of that love dust plus some
that floated around from the vacuum
burned like paid-for crispy sighs
and missing but needed goodbyes
And all I could be was
Suddenly freed
Suddenly freed
Suddenly freed

Wish I was your addictive devotion
sharing all my emotion motion
but I learned the tide had rolled out
with nothing settled, nothing given

Wish I was your fantasy dream girl
the playgirl you wanted to unfurl
the one who could make your world twirl
be more than your down-south cowgirl

And all of that love dust plus some
that floated around from the vacuum
burned like paid-for crispy sighs
and missing but needed goodbyes
And all I could be was
Suddenly freed
Suddenly freed
Suddenly freed
