Showering With The Lights Off

from by TANKINI



I was at the movies alone, I was sittin' in the back row thinkin as that first kiss flashed across the screen how I'd never been a Teenage Girl, and what the hell does it mean to be a woman when your girlhood was defined by a bunch of boys who denied your emotions? (Guess we're pretty similar...) I remember I was 8 years old, showering with the lights off. I was hoping that the heat would change my body (I didn't know! I didn't know!) that I was already whole, and it was everybody else who couldn't see. 'Cause they weren't fuckin ready. Well are you fucking ready? I'm gonna be a teenage girl next time, teenage girl next I'm gonna be a teenage girl next time. Sucking each other off with your stepdad in the next room. What the hell were we thinking? That asshole would have slit our throats. But what the fuck did he know about how a secret girl finds relief giving head to her best friend like it was something to believe in? We needed something to believe in. We were always wishing, we had something....
