Meryn Cadell

This is a poem from the album Angel Food For Thought by Meryn Cadell. It has been quite a while since I've listened to this album, and I forgot that this poem was on it. My husband and I were listening to it in the car the other day and I said, "I have to post this on my blog!"


I'm knitting myself a hat
And I'm sewing up a head to wear it on
And I'll never be this lonely again

I'm making myself some mittens
And I'm stitching my fingers together to keep them warm inside
And I'll never think about it
And I'll never touch myself again

I'm knitting myself a sweater
To cover the body I'm wearing
And the sweater will hang to my knees
And my hair will grow to the floor
And I'll never go outside again
