I was never the lead in your movie.

Left behind in a tousled bed

While you clambered your way,

To her instead.

What of all those girls? Those extras?

Cast aside because we enjoy the ride?

Are we too available to be the main?

Too unrestrained?

You say you want outgoing and fun

But then you run.

Really you seek ‘hard to get’.

The need to fret:

Will she? Won’t she?

You knew I would.

So of course you could..

Go. Just go.

I’m an extra in this movie

I didn’t get the part.

Next time I’ll aim ‘higher’.

I’ll aim for the heart.
