i am a selfish child...

"you know that girl? she's incredible."
that's what everyone says to me.
she is. incredible. yes.
that's her.
incredible.
her?
she's loved. she's adored. she's special.
the favorite.
the other one?
no one talks about the other one.
the best friend.
the one who sticks through all the heartache, pain, and betrayal.
the other one?
she's me.
her?
she's used. she's forgotten. she's nothing.
the one who is always there,
but who is never noticed.

I'm more selfish than you are.

Oh, yes. I just threw down the my-horse-is-bigger-than-your-horse gauntlet.

You don't have a horse.

Q said...

No, but I do have an ego. The horse is figurative.
