2nd One In Line


Never had a call to hope im OK.
Never been asked... if I had a nice day.

And never given, a single chance to shine,
as I am always...the 2nd one in your line.

Never held in a special loving way.
Never told I was missed, when I went away.

And never even told, that I may look fine,
as I am always...2nd in that line.

Never wanted more than I got.
Never been struck by a cupid arrow that`s shot.

And never really told...that I want you to be mine,
as it always seems...i`m the 2nd one in line.

Have never known the love I get to see.
Never felt someones, whole want for me.

And I have never yet seen...any other damn sign,
that tells me any different...that I am not always...The 2nd one, in that friggin line.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
