And just for thought...
I step back into first impressions, doomed one night stands,
Shopping for my one true love in building after building of meat markets and sweat shops.
Judging eyes trace my body as I scan the crowds for a worthy adversary.
Am I any different than that slime over there? That dolled up Barbie over here?
I know what a flick of a man's brow means,
The way the touch of his forearm becomes my invitation.
I know well the man sleeping under the stars with me will not be there when the sun rises.
Strange sensations run across my skin.
I remember as if I never stopped playing this game.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
