I am the girl your mother warned you about -
that when you're done with the easy lays
in beds that never get used to your shape -
You'll look up from your third drink
and see me standing there, patient,
smiling as I realize you're finally seeing me.
I am the girl your life has been leading towards
when "Will you?" turns into "I do"
down a carpeted aisle into forever.
I am the girl you're too scared to talk to
because you see that committment in me.
I am not your one time only:
I better be your only
as I will treat you better than myself.
I am the girl that you ignore
as you reach for your fourth drink.
