I will never be like you.
I will never dance with everyone else.
I will never be able to smile for no reason.
I will never stop being the boring girl.
I will never be popular.
I will never be like you.

I went to the dance,
you were there too.
But not with
You were dancing with your friends,
You were laughing at the loners on the bench
who weren't dancing.
I was one of those

You gave me a look like a punch in the face.
All contorted, painful and unexpected.
your eyes raped me, leaving me naked
and vulnerable as I stood
by the wall.
I can't dance.
I will never be like you.
