Lampshade Hat

You make me simile
I mean smile
Like a drunk with a lampshade hat
Metaphor you and I
I mean before you and I met
I often felt like an idiom
I mean idiot

You make me examine
The way I use words
There’s no way of knowin’
How or why this occurred
The words I am learnin’
Ain’t ones I ever heard
I’ll write down what I see 
As I ride down the road to where your love 
leads me

I’ll regret it
I’d be remiss
If I stop wrestling
With the right way
To write this
You make me simile
Ah, hell, I mean smile
Like a drunk with a lampshade hat

You’re sweetly analogous
To rubies and gold
Love goes up in smoke it weakens
When it’s spoken of or told
But I hope the one speaking to us
Is one I can hold on to
I’ll write down all that I feel
As I ride down the road to what your love 
Reveals

You make me smile
And I mean that
Like a drunk with a lampshade hat
