a bad woman

you misunderstand me
i’m not a dream
real as flesh, real as real
but it never holds
in such a heart

i take what i can
with all i have
a bad woman
that doesn’t wait her turn

you misunderstand me
these words are bricks
and brick by brick
i wall over and under

real as flesh, real as real
bleeding when hurt
and my face will contort
i’m not some made up thing
a bad woman
who frowns when sad
a bad woman you will always misunderstand
