How did you ever find me here?
the girl with the wallflower shoes
stuck and jaded
so tired of always waiting to dance
that the moves now seem clumsy-
two left feet
hobbled by the wrong feelings-
stirring to the wrong music.
I thought I'd hid myself so well
that no one would ever notice
so forgive me if I seem uncertain
it's just that I can't remember
how I'm supposed to act
how I'm supposed to be-
these shoes I picked out
always felt so comfortable
always felt as though they belonged to me-
for proving me wrong.
"how I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need..you'll never know." Natalie Merchant
