They said we were two peas in a pod, so good together
like vanilla ice cream and apple pie
and she laughed for fifteen minutes straight.
She said she liked the way his nose flared when he laughed
and when I asked if my nose flared at all
she said she never really noticed before.
She rolls her eyes at me a hundred and twenty times a day
and I loved every bit of it until
he walked by and she turned and drew a million hearts in the air.
It's been two weeks and I still can't wrap my head around
her praise for that girl
with the eyes and the hair.
And then she came around and called me a miserable asshole
said I'll always be alone
and I'm picky and hard to please and I never like anyone
and I said,"I like you."
