Jezebel?


I know a girl who was kind, funny, and sweet

But her life was merely deceit

She had long blonde locks then cut them short

She might have had babies she had to abort

I wanted to be her best friend

I didn't know her presence would end

(so abruptly)


The lies caught up with the image

We were left to pick up the wreckage

Was she...? Did she...? She was, she did

It breaks my heart the secrets she hid

Cheating, lying, scandals, and sex

Paying her bills thanks to horny rednecks

(it seems)


I want to believe it's not true

I want to believe that's not you

In times of desperation I can understand

But not when it comes to cheating on your man

Maybe we're wrong, maybe we're right

But why would you block us out of spite?

(otherwise)


This is a terrible poem and I know it

If you're not guilty, why don't you show it?

I'd like to think you weren't faking the sweetness

But either way, it's a terrible mess

I guess you really just don't know someone

Until you hear the truth and they're long gone

(without a word)


It's okay. Don't cry.

Touching poem. We can feel your emotions.

You really translated your feelings to words, and it hit the spot. Your hurt shines through it. It's almost like you've written about one of those fallen starlets you've documented. Or the lyrics to the next big song.

P.S.- that molten barbie made me shudder so bad, I dreaded seeing the next image. Hooh!

Putting these words in the form of a poem adds a bit of wry humor to something painful. Total genius.

Have a spectacular weekend :)

Women and girls are so weird, aren't we? We're so deep and mysterious...and sometimes fake. Your poem reminds me of two people who used to be my BFFS.
