  1. I was reading Slim Aarons and I got to thinking that I thought
    Maybe I’d get less stressed if I was tested less like
    All of these debutantes
    Smiling for miles in pink dresses and high heels on white yachts
    But I’m not, baby, I’m not
    No, I’m not, that, I’m not

    I’ve been tearing around in my fucking nightgown
    24/7 Sylvia Plath
    Writing in blood on the walls
    ‘Cause the ink in my pen don’t work in my notepad
    Don’t ask if I’m happy, you know that I’m not
    But at best, I can say I’m not sad
    ‘Cause hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
    Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have

    I had fifteen-year dances
    Church basement romances, yeah, I’ve cried
    Spilling my guts with the Bowery bums
    Is the only love I’ve ever known
    Except for the stage, which I also call home, when I’m not
    Servin’ up God in a burnt coffee pot for the Triad
    Hello, it’s the most famous woman you know on the iPad
    Calling from beyond the grave, I just wanna say, “Hi, Dad”

    I’ve been tearing up town in my fucking white gown
    Like a goddamn near sociopath
    Shaking my ass is the only thing that’s
    Got this black narcissist off my back
    She couldn’t care less, and I never cared more
    So there’s no more to say about that
    Except hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
    Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman with my past

    There’s a new revolution, a loud evolution that I saw
    Born of confusion and quiet collusion of which mostly I’ve known
    A modern day woman with a weak constitution, ’cause I’ve got
    Monsters still under my bed that I could never fight off
    A gatekeeper carelessly dropping the keys on my nights off

    I’ve been tearing around in my fucking nightgown
    24/7 Sylvia Plath
    Writing in blood on your walls
    ‘Cause the ink in my pen don’t look good in my pad
    They write that I’m happy, they know that I’m not
    But at best, you can see I’m not sad
    But hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
    Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have

    Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
    But I have it
    Yeah, I have it
    Yeah, I have it
    I have

  2. Don’t know if hope is a dangerous thing for a woman to have. Perhaps I can see that it could be in some instances. We all need hope. Who knows what lengths we will go to when we have it? Great things have been accomplished inspired by hope, and great failures!

    1. Dear Greg, I’ve left a couple of comments for you, they keep disappearing. I think they may be going into your spam folder, if so will you please release my comments? This happens from time to time, releasing them should help to reset my ability to leave visible comments. Thank you so much. ~ Mia

    1. Hi Randall, terrific to see you here. I hope you’ve been well, and the start of 2019 has been good to you. Thank you for your lovely words. It’s is haunting, I can’t get the song out of my mind, that’s okay, because it’s beautiful. Delighted to make you smile. I am forever hopeful, hope seems to be limitless, fortunately there’s no bottom to that pit, and for that I’m very grateful. Wishing you well too, take good care. ~ Mia
