How did you ever find me here?
the girl with the wallflower shoes
stuck and jaded
into nothing
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
or
how I'm supposed to be-

these shoes I picked out
always felt so comfortable
always felt as though they belonged to me-

Thank you
for proving me wrong.

So the wallflower is blooming now, right? How about a follow up...dancing in my new found shoes or something like that! Would love to read it!
