I am Not The Girl (Spoken Word)

I am not the girl

who needs a guy,

and I certainly won’t cry

when you tell me you moved

on.

I am not the girl who

has a twisted past that needs

fixing,

and sewing back up.

I am not the girl who

needs your love,

I don’t need anything from

you.

And I’m sorry if that hurts you,

but I knew you liked her before

I caught you both in our

bed.

She asked who I was,

and I told her that she looked bad

at giving head.

I am not the girl who

cares about you,

I’m glad you’re in the past.

I am *not* the girl who

sticks around,

who takes your shit,

that doesn’t fit well with me.

I couldn’t understand why

you told me about her,

I didn’t care.

I am not the girl who wants

your advice,

I wear big girl pants now.

I am not the girl who tries

to be someone I’m not.

I’ve been called a bitch more times

than I care to remember,

and I recall that you

called me it last September,

but you thought it was a joke.

I am not the girl who

will take crap from any

‘bloke’

and listen to your misogynistic

views.

It doesn’t amuse me,

it isn’t ‘banter’.

I am not the girl who wants to be

in the spotlight,

I’ve never wanted that.

I am not the girl who you thought

I was,

but you were not the guy I

thought you were, either.
