Not the Girl in the Song

I will never be the girl
about whom someone
writes a song because 
nothing rhymes with me
and though all the words
live in me
I've not yet learned
how to live among them
And the heart
it has no rhythm
just beats a
mad, staccato marathon
in my chest
then stops for days
until it feels safe enough
to beat again
