Always Behind

Always Behind

A Poem by that-little-green-monster
"

When you never feel good enough compared to someone else.. Oh and by the way this isn't about myself.

"
It seems I always walk ten steps behind you,
And it feels like I'm never gonna catch up.
It seems like whenever you look at me,
You never truly see me.
I wish I could say I love you,
But I know you'll never say it back.

It seems I always walk ten steps behind you,
And you never seem to care.
You never notice the diamonds,
Glittering, tauntingly on my cheeks.
I wish I could say I miss you,
But you're already too far away.

It seems I always walk ten steps behind you,
And I don't even think you notice.
Your eyes are always opened when we kiss,
But I guess mine are too.
I wish I could say I need you,
But you wouldn't care.

It seems I always walk ten steps behind you,
And somehow you're the victim.
I already have one foot out the door,
I hope the other will soon follow.
I wish I could say goodbye,
But you'll never let me go.
