    I'm that friend that is always the second

    choice. No one ever thinks to invite me anywhere unless everyone else is busy. No one sees how much it really hurts, I wish I would be someone's first choice for once

    I don't want to be anyone's substitute.

    This is actually kind of new

    for me, I didn't have any experience with being second choice before now, so maybe it's good to post here and gain the experience of people that have been second choice more often. There is this girl she has a guy, they have problems, it came to a head, and about 5 months...

    The Second'S Lament

    As I sit silently still by your side, I realize the sting of second place. Confronted by truths my heart has denied, I see another is winning this race; A fierce sprint to stake a claim to your heart. I feel as though we’re connected so close, Yet we might as well be miles...

    They always take my feelings

    for granted, they always makes me feel an option, just the second choice. I hope someone can make me feel like a priority, not just a choice.

    I'm not shopping around,

    but I feel like I am always just another product on the shelf, it sucks. If I choose you, you're my only choice, but maybe you should choose me and it shouldn't be forced. Idk, I drift in and out. Someday the feeling will be mutual.
