"Grounded, you can't go out!"
I heard, he didn't have to shout.
"You can't go to the prom!"
I think, he should take that up with mom.
Dad slammed the door shut, off to work
He isn't usually such a narsistic jerk.
Slid into my safehaven; it's always a mess
There it was, my long, new satin dress
It was sky blue, just like cinderella
but I had no prince, not a single fella'
Glass shoes would kill my toes
So I wear converse, because anything goes
A tap on my window, who could it be?
My three bestfriends, Jack, Kenz, and Keely
No fairy god mothers can wish me to prom
The girls climb in the window, time to call mom
"Actually, let's just go-"
"Right- how would he even know?"
I didn't have a big magical carriage and horse
I just had two parents in the middle of divorce.
So we left, with nothing to lose
No glass slipper, or any other kind of shoes
Ford Focus, zooming down the street
3 girls scream singing, and dancing to the beat
We arrived, and hurried inside
Bodies moving, darkness, cha-cha-slide
Ofcourse, tall dark and handsome arrived
"Punch?" I felt my heart stop, then revive
He wasn't a prince or even close to a keeper
he sure was cute, but nothing deeper
Hours of dancing, and typical calf pain began
This was never my intention, not my plan
It was GNO, and no curfew I wanted to follow
But midnight struck, it was hard to swallow
I probally should head home soon
I ran outside to a big, glowing full moon
We went and got slushies at 7-11
Done with high school, we were in heaven
I got to my porch, they drove away
To my surpise, no screaming, I wait
"Pancakes?" He asks, flipping them high
"That is something I cannot deny!"
The guy? I left nothing behind, he didn't call back
If you thought this was a love story, I'm going to yack
We all know Prom isn't a fairy tale.
