Poison Sunshine

Apollo, Apollo

Sunshine boy and

To those who know him dizzy dreamer

Tossled blonde hair that

Reflects little bits of light 

Like crumpled candy wrappers

Dark under-eye circles sunk deep

Around lapiz lazuli irises rimmed with

Remnants of tears 

How hard it is to be a sad sunshine boy

Never worry, never fear 

Oh! and never ever ever cry

Because sunshine boys aren't allowed

To cry
