Stop Calling Me Shirley.

 

Surely someone will look,
but pretend not to see

Surely somehow they’ll make this
all about me

Surely somewhere lies waiting
that which I’ve lost

Surely somebody’s paying,
regardless of cost

Surely someday I won’t feel
so damned insecure

Surely something  to love
instead of endure.
