Cinderella

By Sapphirefly


Sitting in a chair

Wearing a thin dress

Thinking about a cigarette

Wondering if my bra strap is showing

Drink the water

Cool my heels

They were going to clack on the pavement anyway

Thinking about leaving

Thinking about the jeans on the chair back

By the mirror at home

"I remember when I was your age"

The woman beside me says

"I had a dress just like that"

I'm feeling tired

Maybe Cinderella didn't want to be a princess

Maybe she just wanted to be herself
