He Got You (That Should Be Me) - Poem by Fareez Nasir

I feel stupid and jealous
When you've got somebody
I looked at him and thought
'That should be me'

You are labelled his
And he is yours to keep
This reality sucks
Let me get some sleep

You give the attention
That I've always wanted
The more I dream I'll get it
The more that I get hurt

Your love story with him
Everybody knows
They keep telling me about you
And I'm just like 'Oh..'

I pretend like it's nothing
Although it's very painful
You asked if I'm alright
I told you we are cool

But that is just a lie
Don't want to ruin it all
You said we can still talk
But then we never called

But why should I cry
When you're not even mine
I wish you last long
No worries about me, I'm fine
