Willful Words: "Second Best"
« on: September 02, 2010, 01:02:27 PM »
I have been writing a character who is insecure, and it made me think of those times you feel on the outside, with everyone else looking as though they are having a good time and sort though the echos of those feelings from when I was a teen.

Then too, that feeling can deepen into quite a bitter to pain if their is someone you really like, but to them you are just a friend and will never be more. And these are the willful words that came to my head..........



Second Best


Swallow down your pride,
And lift up your eyes.
They may not want you first
But the pain is in the lies

Watch them laughing
Take it in your stride,
Love has no place within
A cage of bitter pride

Wish then, not the sad
Lost longings of regret
But for the parts you have
Before they are Beset

No point in longing -
The switch in their heart
Will not materialise
To expand the part
You play in their dreams
Or suddenly change
To to a bring a new
Primary need in range
of their desires for you.
You'll always be next best
A lighthearted moment to
Enjoy a place to rest
A friend to enjoy some
Less emotional times
An ear to bend.
 
Your heart in mine

Swallow down your pride
And lift up your eyes
They may not want you first
But the pain is in the lies

Not sure if I am supposed to reply to any of the blogs here, but that was beautiful.
