Sorry Elvis Presley

Brishti Roy

I refuse to fall - 
Fall in love,
Or into a puddle
Or down the stairs
And scratch my knees,
       bruise my arms,
            or heart.
I wish to fly - 
Fly in love.
    i mean - 
Ride (on) Sire Cupid,
Kiss his wings,
Steal his awkward arrow,
And stab the bastard in his heart.
    Once and for all.
And then I will fall
Right into love.
    Red, Blue, Green,
     Sin, no sin,
       Purged and pure
          Just to be sure
I'll never have to fall again.

    Fall in love
    Or into a puddle
    Or down the stair …..”

  • The imagery used is raw and burning. Quite the opposite of the very sublime song by Presley. Nice work! ❤
