Your Accessory

_____________________________________

An accessory is me
A trend worn on your lap or by your side
Around your friends, I am the blue-eyed love of your life
But in my ear you whisper, "Remember to hush, and pose, don't speak."
Will you ever listen to me?

_

An accessory is me
A hand-bracelet hooked by clasping fingers
A vanilla perfume on your shoulder that lingers
All of this forming to everyone else -nothing- but a false good memory
What to you do I really mean?

_

What kind of accessory hides it's tears,
And never can say how it feels,
Has bruises that no one can see,
A reality no one wants to be?
That accessory is me.

_

An accessory is me.
My chest is a pillow tonight for your head
My warm body provides you with your favorite bed.
But my mind is blank, as your lips press to mine, and I am beginning to see
All of these years, you never loved me.

_

An accessory is me.
I'm the pretty girl who fell for you when I was just 14.
And being seen with you was something good enough to please.
What will you say when all your friends ask what happened to me?
You can tell them I became the out-of style accessory.
