Pass the parcel

15 05 2008

Play a game of pass the parcel
My heart is wearing thin
Each time another layer removed
The next time fresh and new
Maybe this time will be the prize
Or this time
Or this time
Excitement waning
Layers discarded on the floor
A party game of life
Meet greet
Smile for a week
Desperate to tear through it in an instant
Maybe this time
But every time the same
Passed on to the next one
The music stops
We start again..
Pass the parcel
