Upper eyelids

If you would take away your hand off my mouth and— and nose

Not at once

Not totally

If you would simply take away your tangled tentacles off my brain

Not at once

But for good

If you would simply free my eyelids from all the weight you put on— I allow you to

All at once

Simply for good

If you would just keep the heart with you— only the right side

All yours

The right side

If you would simply be there for me— cozy afternoon tea

Not possible

All has changed
