Me

Location

Why can't they see me?

I mean of course they look

But just at my face and not my mind

They see my size and my innocence

And think it'll be easy to get between my thighs

They measure my features and not my heart

They'd rather know my body, than my art

They like me until I let them know

That it's so easy for me to say no

I mean, yes I could give you me

But not the me that you all want

I can give you my focus and my dedication and my inspiration and my thoughts

But that me just isn't good enough for you

The real me isn't real enough for you

You want a me that acts like the rest

Like the girls that think love doesn't come without sex

And the girls that let guys make them

And the girls that let guys depreciate them

But I can't give you those other girls

I can only give you the intellegence and the cleverness

And the laughter and the love of me

Favorite line: "The real me isn't real enough for you."

It's sad, because all of us thought that way at some point.

The fact that you're your own person really shines through here. Amazing work.
