Three’s a Crowd

I am participating in the #BarAThonEdition3 which involves alternate days of blogging from July 2nd, 2018 to July 15th, 2018, based on a theme and a prompt for the day.

I’m used to it,

That feeling of being left out,

With them around.

I know it hurts, but—

what hurts more,

is knowing,

That you weren’t

even a simple thought

In their minds.

Not a second chance,

Nor the backup friend;

Slowly realising

How you become

less important,

day by day,

hour by hour,

Until one day,

you cease to exist.

  3. Ah this is indeed a sad tale and one so many of us have to tell. It’s happened to me too and feels awful like my self worth is nothing. It can make a loner out of a person.

    1. Absolutely. We’ve all been there, although not every one will admit to it. I echo your emotions in this situation, totally. Good to see you stop by the blog, Shalz. 🙂

    1. Yes, it was the mood that I was in. Didn’t have to try very hard. I felt it in my heart that way. Felt lighter after writing it down.
