Lost Girls

Lost girls, pale faces, dark half-moon circles underneath each eye,

Having grown used to everyone’s goodbye.

Lost girls, fifteen-pound backpack, wool socks,

Having grown used to being about what everyone talks.

Lost girls, black skinny jeans, safety pins,

Having grown used to the bullying that never ends.

Lost girls, bright pink matte lipstick, dark eyeshadow,

Having grown used to being asked questions they don’t know.

Lost girls, thin fingers, bright eyes,

Having grown used to the lies.

Lost girls, great report card, fancy car,

Lost girls not knowing where they are.
