siga girl

amusing,

the way you pout

upon noticing my stare,

the ball cap and the tee,

matches to complete

your seeming disregard

to femininity.

how quaint

how lavishly simplistic,

you hide behind your armor

to escape,

when every night

you water your pillows,

berating yourself

for being too weak

to set aside your scowl

and return the smile

of him who courts you.

  1. by the way, janet. “siga” is our vernacular for bully. i used this to describe her as a boyish girl…πŸ™‚ and no, this time there was no particular real-life inspiration for the poem, just an imagined one.πŸ™‚

  2. finally got to 2007! YAY! anyway…

    siga girl…oh how lonely they get. this piece hit a little too close to home.

    “how quaint

    it’s not to escape really. it’s like a defense mechanism of sorts. it’s not like they don’t want anyone to get in…it’s just that they’re afraid to hurt others. see, they think differently…or perhaps not. i’m losing track.
    πŸ˜„ nice though…a filling rough sketch of ‘siga’ girls.

    [a siga girl would probably fall by the last line XD]
