I Wanted You The Most

Your glossy, Polaroid picture
in my pocket.
That’s the only thing that reminds
me of you, obviously.

I earned my way up,
inside your unique heart.
I contested a part.
I have aimed a good goal.

And I wanted you the most.
And I loved you too dearly.
And I was the one hurt.
And I was the one left behind.
