Just how much I cared,
Just how much of my thoughts I dedicated to thinking about you,
You might not of realised how my eyes gravitate towards your face, in order to catch a glimpse of your feelings for me,
You possibly don’t grasp how influential you are to my decision making,
You can’t know….
Otherwise you wouldn’t push me aside so callously,
Ignored and on a shelf,
You undoubtedly don’t see the pain that crosses my face as I have to make yet another compromise,
You couldn’t know the jealousy that rises like bile when I am compared to her,
You can’t know…
Otherwise you would never use me,
Forgotten on a shelf,
