I wish i was her…


They rode to school together,
he kissed her goodbye,

Swinging her red basket,
she walked into the dissipating world,
the world behind those gates.

He kept looking, anxious eyed,
till he could see her last
.
I wish I was her.

She wanted those green shoes,
they made her look tall,
they matched her new corset,

the one she would wear for new years.

She didn’t have no money,

she had him.

She wore those green shoes.

I never wanted them. Really.

I wish I was her.

We got off the tram,
Pleasure trips are fun.

She called him to say she was safe,

She promised to take care,

to return before midnight,

to call often,
to never wander alone.
My phone never rang.
I wish I was her.
