Cake (Villanelle)

Hey "sweet cake", just lay still til' I'm through
I bought buttermilk icing, flavor...vanilla
I want my "cake" and eat it too
Handful of sprinkles to decorate you
Bringing the animal outta me as I "Go-Realer"
Hey "sweet cake", just lay still til' I'm through
Stop tensing up. Not done. You're my "cake", remember boo?
I said lay still, now you're a squealer
Hey "sweet cake", just lay still til' I'm through
Feels like my birthday as I stare upwards at your high heel shoe
Icing almost gone. Don't worry it was only filler
Hey "sweet cake", just lay still til I'm through
Your eyes closed, waiting for your wish to come true
Marvin Gaye in background praising me as a "Healer"
I want my "cake" and eat it too
You're exhaling as if there were candles you blew
I finish as you're frail and jitter
Hey "sweet cake", just lay still til' I'm through
I want my "cake" and eat it too
