the second choice. the four word lies they tell them. i love you, insert name, they said. you’re my best friend, they said. i have your back, they said. you’ll never lose me, they said.

the second choice. the ones who stick around only because of the fear of having no one. the ones who are afraid that if they make the wrong move, they'll be forever alone.

the second choice. the ones who watch their best friend pick that person over them. the ones who stand on the sidelines, cheering for their “friends,” who never seem to cheer for them.

the second choice. the ones who are a literal second choice. the ones who others go to when their ideal friend to be with isn’t available. the ones you can count on to go to when your best friend is absent.

the second choice. the ones who seem fine but really aren’t. the ones who come home with tears in their eyes. the ones who let out their emotions to their pillow, instead of a human being.
