sigh

I sigh,
I just sigh,
it’s all I can do
cause the truth don’t lie

it’s all there,
all a part of the
girl you named Pearl

WTF were you thinking?

I was never smooth,
I’m rough around the edges;
I was never cool to the touch,
I’m hot-blooded and tempered

no daddy, I’m not the gem you believed

I was never gonna be the perfect neck candy

daddy, the boy who picked this flawed pearl
found he got a hot mess of loose stones

good thing he likes to bind wild things;
I do believe the boy done strung me tight

perhaps you just knew I would
shine under pressure
