That’s all I want to be

Except it’s not.

I’ve just learned to make the best of what I got-

Which is nothing.

I see the empty promises you make

The obligatory smile

The curt nod.

But in the end I’m not part of your tribe-

Just an outsider looking inside.

I’m that puzzle piece

Cut a little too jagged to fit in

The one you never acknowledge as a friend.

I’m the person you need when you fall

But once I help you stand

You let go of my hand

Leaving me alone

To watch you walk away.
