you seem like the kind of girl
that watches sunsets
and daydreams on her back porch
does your mother call you in for dinner
while you say
just a moment, mum.
and stand up slowly, rubbing paint
onto your cutoff jeans?
i bet you have a dog,
named Spots or Timmy or Tiger
and two brothers and no sister
but i bet you
wish for one.
two parents, that's what you have.
they kiss while you and your brothers
groan and whine about it.
and here you are, sitting on this curb
next to me,
the girl everyone's afraid of,
and ask why i hate you.
don't you know i'd give anything to have that?
it may seem glamorous on
whatever pathetic soap opera you watch,
but i promise having no one there
is about as bad as it can get.
out here in the suburbs it is.
i'm sick of
and im sick of
being called a bitch.
but, you know,
that's the only way i know how to be.
don't give me that pitying look,
i'll slap it off your face,
i'm not here to be pitied
i'm here to save you.
don't ever give up the way you watch
sunsets or the way
you listen to love songs.
and, damn it,
i'd give anything to be like that
