Topic: Lepers Among Us

by J. P. Davies

Perhaps you're the one
with a heart on your sleeve
standing there in the corner
and frowning at me

You can't say a word
your eyes wander south
you have a perpetual
foot in your mouth

don't lose your head
I swear that it's true
if you fall apart on me
how will I hug you?
