Carnival Man [repost]

fair ferris wheel night lights carnival

You’re like a fair at night,
Neon lights on a sapphire sky,
Flaws hidden from sight.
You’re all music and ice cream
And dimes tossed in dishes,
Giant teddy bear wishes.
The pulse of this party
Makes fun seem forever,
But like a ride wristband
You number your kisses.
Next month you’ll be gone,
Packed up, and moved on.
