Second Best

Second Best

A Poem by Millie
"

I was just second best.

"
Second Best? Was that all I ever was?
Just the person to fill the gap,
When lonely nights took their hold?
I gave you all of me, 
So, from what I see, all was not enough?
Why did yo change so much?
Was the gap too big, could I not fill it?
You have your picks for lonely nights.
Yet I'm the one sat here, longing. 
Longing that you'll realise.
That I was not made for your lonely nights.
Second best, 
Dream a dream of sweet dismay.
As every other person can come before me. 
Make you feel something, just for a little while. 
Does it really mean anything?
Yet i'll be here, just a phone call away.
It won't be me, who's first in the pecking line. 
It stings, that second best feeling. 
I can't hate you, nor make this stop. 
But second best, I shall be not. 
For letting you live lonely would be punishment enough.
A warning in fact, that lonely nights, 
They were made for two alone,
So don't make me become second best.
You have your pick, 
But I shall no longer be apart of that.

Expressed the emotion for the neglect.
The sentiment is very common among women who has been defeated by the race
of another woman through beauty,charm , wealth or perverted nature of the male partner.
Presented a complex situation encountered in life very vividly.

Kailer Mason - Through out this one I imagined her standing in front of him telling him the facts that he needs to be told even if he already knows them. With him just stood there not wanting to look at her and show that he already is in the knowledge that he's in the wrong with her x

Dang . . . no one should feel second best. I love how you tell this guy off in this one. I can visualize a woman screaming this at her ex while throwing his stuff out the front windows
