The Manic Pixie Dream Girl

You never knew me

You never knew anything past yourself

You wear me like an accessory

The girl who will make your life better!

The girl who never gets pleasured

The girl who keeps her mouth shut

For the guy who doesn’t have much going on

Who feigns complexity by mirroring my depth

I’m not a trope

I’m a real person

So what if I like to dress up

So what if I like the same things you do

I felt so one dimensional when we were together

I mistook your admiration for respect

When I realized that,

I left like the manic pixie dream girl that you think I am

    Powerful and worthwhile verbal poetry. I have three daughters and I told them. Talk to people before showing your real face. Don’t give away your kindness to worthless people. When love is work. It isn’t love dear poet.

        I enjoyed your site B. Today, everyone is rushing. We must understand. We must love the good and bad of another. You are welcome.
