"Emo girl on her best friend's porch steps

Marlboro in hand, DCs on her feet

Scuffed up and bleeding again,

The angel in some young man's dream

The faerie in another girl's fantasy

Fingers stretched across the fret board




Her heart in a composition book,

Working weekends, just

Trying to get by

With mascara tears, black-rimmed blue eyes

Like she never loved at all.

'I'll wear your goodbye like a bad tattoo.'"
