Lay for the Day 5th
Monroe died on this day in 1962.
want love like a movie,
like kisses in rainstorms and tap-dance routines,
I want beauty like a movie,
backlit in satin for swimming-pool scenes,
I want heroes like a movie,
in dogfights and shootouts on extrawide screens,
I want you like real life.
