novelty

you look in awe

not of me

of that I’m not her

and you’re happy

 

But it’s not me

I’m just a novelty

to you

and to many

 

But novelties fade

awe dissipates

you’ll leave full

and I’ll be empty

 

Getting over her

through me

And you’ll never have

to get over me.

 

I’m just a novelty
