I Wish I Was the Girl I Wasn't

I wish I was the girl I wasn't
met up with your list
of checked preferences
(endless)
top to bottom
that bottomless pit
my trust fell into

There I met my true love
with another
while shelving me away for what play
while using others

I wish I was the girl I wasn't
I wish you were the man you aren't
I wish I had the courage to leave you
to your list of checked preferences
go chase the sizes that had you lie
go touch the lips that have you smile

Your love cut deep
This isn't a game
You no longer have my name

And the women like you who met his list of checked preferences
you rob women like me
of love
you steal love and desire for yourself
criminals of love
you live on the being the girl I wasn't
