the world outside

ice forms on my window
i think to remind me of
just how cold the outside world can be
i don't want to think about it anymore
i'm pacing maddening circles
in paths around my mind
i can't get out and i can't break through them
if only i could make it all go away
i could go back to normal happy thoughts
about you and me the way we fit so well
the way i sleep so soundly when i'm in your arms
not about paris, fat in a dress
not about the boulder that is becoming my tummy
not about the dizzy from the place that's not your smile
