together they read comics and sing
'Japanese gum' and all along
she pretends by staying friends
they're helping fight the crime
of all the other boy girl life lines.
but he can't wait forever. one day
when one of the desperate girls
shines bright in the street light
he might start to believe his own lies
and it'll be her he wakes up next too.
And there I'll be
with a pregnancy test resting
on my knee,
watching as she makes him laugh
and tear myself apart
because I never thought
I was good enough for the guy
who breaks girl's hearts.
