My lips will leave scars on your neck
Your words will leave scars on my heart
and I’ll always be the girl who
tells you what I like
To tell you yes to the song on the radio
or no to the shirt that doesn’t look well with those pants.
I’ll always be the girl who
when to go faster and slower
when not to stop.
and If I love you,
I promise I will let you know.
I don’t want to try and be the girl
lets you look down on her
during the times
that she goes out
to smoke a cigarette
after a long day of blistered feet
a broken heart.
I want to feel pretty
when I’m with you.
I want to feel like I’m the girl you were looking for.
But first I need to love myself
