Second Best

In a world of comparision

No one settles for second best.

At least, not until number one

Falls flat.

Then they turn around and see

That what they let slip through their fingers

Has moved on.

They may beg and try to apologize

With regrets and worthless lies

But second best has found someone else.

She's found someone who makes her feel like

Nothing more and nothing less

Than the absolute best.

The End
