When you suddenly realize

No one notices

When your little world

Is coming down,

Crashing down

Around you.

Then you realize

No one sees

The tears in your eyes.

They don't care enough

To look beneath

Your surface.

They don't know

You well enough

To know the difference.

When you realize

You probably

Don't know them.

Then you realize

If it came down to it

You could never be

Their first choice.

In the end

It's no one's fault.

In the end

You're always

Everyone's

Second choice.

In the end

You're always

The awkward new girl.

Never finding

Your place

In the real world.
