Dancing alone

You danced with everyone that night, and I watched wishing I had the same chance
When it came time to ask, I asked if you would save me the last dance
You looked at me with disgust and told me I couldn’t keep up with you if I tried
Tears welled up on the inside as my heart wept knowing that the last bit of hope I had died
I smiled at you and told you you were right
I kept that painted smile on as I walked out that night
The door opened and I could no longer keep up the smile, the lie
Hope was the last thing keeping me here and without it, it’s time to say goodbye
He loved everybody more than me, and he watched and laughed while I lived in strife
His name will always be remembered as the man that broke my heart, his name was life

this Is the poem that has me staring at others happiness and wondering what that’s like. It’s the feeling similar to that unloved kid wishing someone would hold them and tell them they’re special.
