I watch from the shadows
as you engulf her in your love-
Your hands creeping up her sides,
over her back and face
Your lips sharing words, feelings,
affections, through hers

I’m crushed

Your breath tickles her ear
as you whisper “I love you”
Your smile shines brightly
as you see her giggle
My heart plunges down
when I see the love

I’m crushed

Why can’t you see that I
love you just as much as her?
Why can’t you see that I
can make you happy just as much as her?
I love you so much...
But you just can’t see it

I am...truly crushed
