    Whatever happened
    to that lovely girl who lived next door
    the one with the virgin face and the holy eyes

    We all were sinners
    but praying kept her knees to the floor
    holding rosary beads between her pious thighs

    I remember
    when I first heard the news
    how I didn't believe a single word they said.

    Late September
    you had to have the blues
    walking the street where the lights are red

    Didn't believe it
    you stood right before my eyes
    with just a smile and a string of pearls

    Couldn't conceive it
    It all caught me by surprise
    doing trade among the working girls.

    Yo, this is deep- on a whole lot of levels. I gug lines like:"We all were sinners but praying kept her knees to the floor
    holding rosary beads between her pious thighs "

    Don't weep Mary.

    JAH Love.

    My Catholic Background ringing through

    Sweet Mary went to my old school and unfortunately, she took a turn for the worse and ended up turning tricks--Ra

    I dare say Mary's own Catholic upbringing took it's toll...

    my opinion...(don't get me started on the pitfalls of piety & religiosity, under any denomination)

    very, very poignant, and all too real

    Real Life

    I knew her all through school until she just dropped off the map--never saw her again until I was well into college and hanging out late--saw her with the working girls--I was very kind to her--the reality wasn't this nice--Ra

    Life is Strange

    I just remembered this girl about three weeks ago when they sent out a high school reunion notice and her old high school picture was in it. I wondered would she be there.
