Resigned, a poem

I would choose to be the one he favors over me.
The one he keeps going back to.
The one he refuses to let go.
Even after promising to do so. 
She meets a need I can’t. 
Even after we kiss and they don’t.
She still holds something of his that I don’t.

Shine

Together, but separate
   we shine
Next to each other, but alone
   we shine
A mini-universe within
   shines just for us.

Dear Reader, 

This poem is written from an image prompt for #PromptsAndCircumstance  a daily writing session set up by +Bliss Morgan on Google+. If you are a fellow Plusser, stop by and say “Hi!” and maybe read some of the submissions under the hashtag. 

If you’s like to see the rough draft of this, I posted it online w/a pretty overlay of the universe. You can see it here at Instagram.com/deyanira.writes

Thanks for reading!
