Second Best

By: Noelle Darlene Bass

She's been here before,
being the last to know,
the first to be left,
the last he would come to.
Never realizing,
She was only- second best.

She would always wonder:
is he breaking up with her today?
That's the price you pay,
for being- second best.

She cries in despair,
hopes her broken heart will mend
In hopes of never being
Second Best, again.
