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.
