"The world is an awful, ugly place not to have a best friend."~Sarah Dessen

I think I always knew

Who you were

I think I always knew

Who I wasn't

Self-conscience and vain

I fell into step with you

I'm not naive

Just a coward

Simply scared

I silently screamed at you

You never noticed

You'll never notice


You aren't exactly smart

But I'm a coward

And far too kind to tell you.

The author's comments:
This was written in about 5 minutes. It's basically my relationship with someone who I know or...knew since we don't speak anymore. I wanted to be close to them because of dumb reasons, but after I wrote this I was completely done and I've broken off all ties with them. This person is still sadly stuck in oblivion where they think that they are God's gift to mankind. I've moved on though. No longer someones shadow. I'm me.
