Girls Like Us

You don’t get involved with girls like us and expect a waiver from complexity

We’re your ticket straight into it

Past loves don’t stay in the past

They resurface and linger and occasionally tear through your illusion of stability like a goddamn tornado

We might love you but will only deceive you into thinking we’re in love

Sometimes we may even deceive ourselves along the way

We are the unintentional heartbreakers

And no matter how carefully we try to set your heart down in front of you

We will find some possible way to damage it

Developing feelings for so many so quickly and mistaking one’s for another’s until they all become one

And we are left confused and unsure

Unintentionally irresponsible

Unintentionally damaging

Unintentionally easy to fall in love with

Hard to love

Hard to forget
