Settling for less

image

 

It’s sad that he’s not
the object of her affection.
It’s sad that he’s not
the one she desires more than anything.
It’s just sad that he’s not
the one she can’t live without.

It’s sad that he’s not
loved for all that he is.
It’s sad that he’s not
appreciated for all his efforts.
It’s just sad that he’s not
cherished like a rare gem he’s always been.

It’s sad that he’s not
pampered and adored.
It’s sad that he’s not
her Knight in shining armor.
It’s just sad that he’s not
her one true love…her everything.

It’s sad that he’s not
aware that she’s playing him for a fool.
It’s sad that he’s not
aware she’s focused on only one thing.
It’s sad that he’s not
aware she doesn’t love him the way she should.
It’s just sad he’s not
aware that he has settled for less than he deserves.

      1. It’s always denial and hope and the sad thing is that is that it’s being taken advantage of. Maybe mentally he feels he can’t do better than her, she has already implanted that in his head.
