"Girl Toy"

Sweet conviction of your confidence,

for every one time you've faltered,

I've faltered about a thousand.

Silly girl in platform shoes and

glitter gold. When you cry

at night from the boys who

exude even more confidence than

yourself, you always ask me why.

Pretty girl in halter tops and

thongs, what have you come to

expect? A boy is just an object on

your sequined leash and diamond

studded collars, you like the

attention and I don't blame you.


Don't worry, I'll pick up the pieces

again when they drop you again,

like they always do… like you

know they will. Strong, grounded

Liz, who doesn't need to worry

about anything. But, maybe next

time, I won't wait around when

you get in the car and drive away.
