Neck and neck,
Could taste something new,
And was rejected.
Because I was good,
Too good at something else.
She was a nobody,
Reaching for something she never had,
I got nothing,
Even though I gave everything I had.
My body,
My heart,
My being entirely.
I thought I deserved it,
Everyone thought I did,
But I guess not.
I deserve to be nothing more
than a pawn,
Commanded by the major.

    People can get caught, stuck, in a place they don't feel they belong. Not because of lack of skill or faintness of heart, but because they are needed more where they are than where they might hope to be.
