Poetry Friday: Bright Lights and Cityscapes by Sara Bareilles

Hold my breath and I'll count to ten
I'm the paper and you're the pen
You fill me in, you are permanent
And you'll leave me to dry

I'm the writer and she's the muse
I'm the one that you always choose
She will falter and gift her blame
And it starts all over again

- from the song Bright Lights and Cityscapes by Sara Bareilles

Listen to the song here.

This song has such beauty and truth.
