Big Girls' Clothes

  1. Masquerade
    By Sophia Vaughan

One day I will fit into those big shoes
Although my toes will blacken and blue
Those bright red slippers will carry me
On Poppies, On Lavenders, On sallow seas
One day I will fit into those shirts
Even though they will slip to flirt
Those sheer sheets will cover me
From open hearts and steady pleas
One day I will grow old
My withered teeth will begin to mold
I cannot do anything but waste
To sit, to fret, to await my fate
