Labeled

You never thought it would be you.
But it is,
You are that girl,
The Other Girl.
It doesn’t matter what the truth holds
How it was all him and not you.
He made the moves-
He called-
But you fell for him.
You should stop,
Because you know it isn’t right,
But you can’t.
You see her- the one he’s with
So much like you,
That could be you.
STOP
You are getting in too deep,
But the thought of losing him is too hard to bear.
It doesn’t matter anyway,
Because the damage is done-
You are forever labeled:
The Other Girl.
