You only call when she isn’t there, otherwise I am nothing.

You only miss my voice when no one else is answering.

Let me tell you,

I do not want to be your option.

I do not want to be your second or third choice.

I do not want to be your sometimes.

I do not want to be the girl that you string along so that you have someone when it’s convenient to you.

I am not a cigarette that you can just use to make yourself feel better

And then throw out when you don’t need it anymore.

It hurts because you will always be my first choice.

I know my worth,

But you are my weakness.
