DO YOU?

I GOT STOOD UP TONIGHT
THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME
IN THE LAST THREE WEEKS
THIS IS NOT A GOOD AVERAGE
ALTHOUGH THREE OF
THE FOUR TIMES
WAS THE SAME ASSHOLE
EVEN SO
FOUR NIGHTS
I PUT ON A PRETTY SKIRT
OR DRESS
THEN BLUSH
AND EYESHADOW
AFTER THAT I BRAIDED MY HAIR
AND PUT ON MY CUTE LITTLE
BLACK MARY JANE SHOES
AND WAITED ON THE COUCH
ALL NIGHT
WHILE MY ROOMMATE KEPT POURING ME WINE
SAYING THINGS LIKE
"YOU'RE BETTER OFF, YOU DONT WANT TO
DATE SOMEONE WHO CANT SCHEDULE THEIR
OWN LIFE AT THE AGE OF 26, DO YOU?"
AND I THOUGHT
NO I DONT
I JUST WANT
ONE LITTLE THING
TO LOOK FORWARD TO
I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON
A PROPER DATE
I DONT THINK I EVER WILL
I DONT THINK I WOULD
LIKE THAT ANYWAYS
