Marilyn Monroe

I’ve got cold feet,
Script has run its course;
It’s clear as day now,
I’m the underdog, the dark horse.

Don’t do rehearsals, you know,
I’m like Marilyn Monroe;
Look nothing short of a dime,
When it’s all for show.

But I’m never on time.
No I won’t do,
What I’m supposed to;
You can always count on me to disappoint you.
Blow away all your money too when my sanity’s on the line.

I’m leaving my state of grace behind,
Waiting for my big break.
Where the hell’s my understudy
When my future’s at stake?

Call in the pro,
‘Cus everyone knows,
I’ll only let you down.
And I might overdose when you’re not around;
I’m like Marilyn Monroe.

Life’s like a play;
Watch me push everyone away,
Then turn around and say,
“I want the world on a silver plate.”

Yeah, I’ve got stage fright
But I want to make things right;
It’s time to call in my understudy.
‘Cus it’s showtime when the bright lights come on.
And I want to be the one you think you’re betting on.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
