Material things, I find in your heart

As I place my hand to yours, you start

My palms are cold on your bare chest

I told you, I don't settle for second best

"Seduction is sly", you whisper in my ear

I try to inch closer, perhaps one inch to near

He frowns, oh this pitiful conquest!

My darling! I will not lose this contest.

"Hush". He says, one finger to my lips

Pressed tight, rosebud smooth, they have never been kissed

"This is wrong." He mumbles, he re-shirts his chest

And yet, your cheating blood boils with zest

On the edges of your mind, I scatter petals pink

I wonder, behind your eyes, what thoughts you think

"Is my faithfullness to my Love, speared by a test?

If so, then you will always fall first, second best" 

Painful in my own imperfection,

I realise your love, has its selection

The First, she sits awaiting your return

Redhaired and lavish fire's a'burn

And Second Best, is broken, bent

Left in heartbreaking discontent

No joke, no happy little jest

It's forever damaging, to be forever Second Best
