Poem: ‘Top Two’

He had given me every reason to forget him but I just couldn’t let go.
It wasn’t because he was holding me back in more ways than others,
it was that he always said he wanted to help me grow.
I wasn’t too emanated with passion that I couldn’t see straight. I chose not to.
There were signs and emotional boundaries that I never got to.
Now I am left here all alone and not even in his top two.
