“It takes two to tango”
but only one of us wanted to dance.
I said no,
You said yes.
You dragged me onto the dance floor anyways
you danced me through the music’s syncopated beats
but my heart beat faster than the silent music.
I wasn’t dancing with you- I didn’t want to
But you danced with me- as if you had the authority.
I said no
You said yes
gripping me with no finesse
my eyes wide open, my body tense
and after that dance and ever since that dance
Since when did no ever mean yes?
