Jack in the Box

He’s a jack in the box

One second in, one second out

A “lover”, a “best friend”

In just one second

 

I am a marionette

One second suspended, one second crumpled                                                                

Alive, or being played

I’ve never been sure

 

You’re the child in the playroom

One second contended, one second searching

Holding me up, keeping things together

Never letting go

 

We are the dreamers

One second wishing, one second believing

No hesitations, no shame

Reaching for more
