Settling on a Consolation (Poem #120)

It hurts to be the second choice

but still, I wrap my arms around you

because I know that it hurts to have me near you

when it’s her voice you’d rather hear


There may have been a tiny doubt

if with you I can still keep up

but then I asked myself

what am I whining about?

Can I just be glad to be on your list

even when I’m not on top?

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
