she  loves

six-inch stilettos
black leather pants
smoking imported cigarettes
Opium Parfum
and Sara

she  craves

dancing all night
riding motorcycles
getting high
champagne cocktails
and Sara

she defies

gravity
cellulite
laws of  averages
growing older
and Sara

she says fuck off  to

falling to Earth
any color except black
addiction
death
and Sara

“Fuck You”   Sara Bareilles

lyrics ~

I see you driving ’round town
With the girl I love and I’m like,
Fuck you!

I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn’t enough
I’m like, Fuck you!
And fuck her too!

I said, if I was richer, I’d still be with ya
Ha, now ain’t that some shit?
And although there’s pain in my chest
I still wish you the best with a…
Fuck you!

Yeah, I’m sorry, I can’t afford a ferrari,
But that don’t mean I can’t get you there.
I guess she’s an xbox and I’m more atari,
But the way you play your game ain’t fair.

I pity the fool that falls in love with you
Oh shit, she’s a gold digger
Well, just thought you should know
I’ve got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little boyfriend

I see you driving ’round town
With the girl I love and I’m like,
Fuck you!

I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn’t enough
I’m like, Fuck you!
And fuck her too!

I said, if I was richer, I’d still be with ya
Ha, now ain’t that some shit?
And although there’s pain in my chest
I still wish you the best with a…
Fuck you!

  1. honestly, i would die in six-inch stilettos…smiles…cool write..direct and real..ha..i like

  2. gosh…how sobering addiction is ….have worked with addicts….its a rather surreal kinda life….i wonder what led her up to that…

    • you focused in on exactly my main point ~ her addictions that she may only admit to being things she “loves” or “wants” but can do without. it was probably walking around in six-inch stilettos that led to her addictions! {smile} thanks for coming by, brian!

  3. I loved the poem and the picture! Well done!!

  4. Sassy one, Dani. Love the descriptions and those heels! I’d fall flat on my face.

    • i wouldn’t care about walking in them ~ just prop me in a corner where i can look good. {smile} thanks for the prompt, Victoria. i hope the progression of her emotions in each stanza got across that she’s addict, including being addicted to Sara.

    Loved the image, the words then fit it so perfectly.
    Then the lyrics of the song. Last night, my xbox gave up the ghost and I had to buy a new one today. But there is nowt wrong with being atari just as there is nothing wrong in saying fuck off at times.
    Great post.

  6. Awesome poem! Gotta love those shoes! Never heard this version of the song before, but the CeLo one is definitely catchy!

    • the you tube search i did had CeLo’s version, too. i’d die for those shoes! then probably die in those shoes trying to walk! {smile} thanks for stopping by, Ms Mouse! ♥

  7. The repetition in this is really effective.

  8. You painted her well Dani, nice format of the words across the page ~ Can’t walk in those heels anymore ~

    Have a good week ~

  9. *covers virgin ears*

    such language! *faints dead away*

  10. I’ve never worn shoes like this…I’m too tall…I look at them in envy…maybe I need a change in attitude… love this poem, thoroughly enjoyed! :)

    • i think they’d look even sexier on a tall woman! i just worry about anyone actually trying to walk in them! thank you for your visit and kind comment, Di! ♥

  11. Powerful image–some people have a tendency toward addiction, when they kick one habit another takes its place. (I’ve even known addicts addicted to recovery programs). Fine work here.

  12. This poem packs a wallop, Dani. I join Claudia who says she would die in those shoes. I would consider them an instrument of torture. LOL.

  13. A great image of attitude and swank. The song was kool too.

  14. So freakin’ cool. It should be a song!

  15. oh so much addiction…. I loved your description.
    I bet I can’t gulp in these addictions…. we live miles apart and life is so different…..

    • that’s true, but there are some we should both find if we look {like people getting addicted to other people in an unhealthy way} and i’m sure we both could find addictions the other could not. that’s one of the amazing things about the internet, isn’t it? we can learn so much more about every day life around the world. thank you so much for your visit and comment, sreeja! ♥

  16. Walking in those shoes would give anyone an attitude! Sometimes the lines blur between what we love and what we crave. But I do miss those midnight motorcycle rides….

  17. I love it Dani and I so want those heels ;D
    YOU rocked it <3

  18. …I wonder what made you,girls, liked high hills stilettos? Yeah, it’s kind of sexy to look in your part…but then sometimes i find it kind of a torture to your feet…ha.. Tight write here i must say… and liked the forming…smiles…

    • there’s a saying over hear that beauty is only achieved through pain… {smile} personally i’m a jeans and boots kinda girl, but i’d make an exception for those shoes!

  19. And of course you DO know why men love women in Stiletto heels?
    Men LOVE those short…menacing steps!
    Loved your Raging 55 Dani Dear…
    I just Love it when you play…:-)
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End…G

    another world, shoes and all =)

  21. Love the edgy, f-u feel of the poem, and the structure as well

  22. What a character description you’ve created here, Dani. So well done, solid in presentation, no contradictions or unbelievable attributes. Solid.
