• Second Best

    My starry eyed surprise,

    So you’re with her now? That’s awesome. I’m excited for you. I want you to be happy and god knows we weren’t going to last long term. What’s the line? “maybe this is what happens when a tornado meets a volcano”? Ok, so you never beat me like the song talks about. But that’s how we were. A whirlwind. And more intense than anyone thought possible. We loved and hated each other more than I knew anyone could.

    It was on fire.

    And you’re with her now. Safe, sweet, secure little her. And that’s good for you, I guess. Honestly, I think she’s a little too tame for your tastes. But we’ll see. Maybe I’ll get proven wrong. It doesn’t really matter because we can’t go back. We are so bad together. It always hurt so good.

    But in all this, you need to remember something. I will NEVER be second best. I will always come first in your heart. First in your head. Nothing she does will ever take that away from me. I was always first to you and gave you so many of your firsts. You’ll never forget that or me, so don’t bother trying. Your sad little attempts at wiping away what we did together are just that. Sad. Especially when you call me drunk more than once a week just to tell me how much you miss them.

    So don’t put on faces, baby blues. Everyone knows who I am to you.
