second best

youve been in my life for 18 long years 
and all ive ever wanted was to be with you 
you didnt even notice that growing up
i was trying to get close to you
you were my friend for so long
and everytime you got your heart broken 
i would cry for you
you were strong and didnt show it 
but i know you hurt over it
and now that im finally with you 
after waiting so long
im afraid...
you said you would never hurt me
and i believed you 
but now that youre spending more time with her
im starting to wonder.
i wonder whats really going on between you two
if its just friendship after the long relationship
or if there is more that im not seeing
i get so scared when she is around
because you dont see the way you look at her
the way you smile when she talks
the way you are so comfortable with her around
the way your eyes light up when she walks in
the way you say her name in your sleep
it seems so obvious to me that you still love her
how could you not?
you two share an unbreakable bond
and no matter how hard you fight it
no matter how many times you tell me its nothing
i know thats a lie
there is something there
something im missing 
dont think that im trying to replace her. 
that is the last thing i would want to do
i really do love you
but ill never be her
youll never look at me like that
youll never love me like that
you say you love me...
is it true?
or will i just be
second to you...
