place holder

don’t let me get in the way

like a door stopper

just take your time;

but we see the inside

joy and love all in a single package

that isn’t on sale when I go to Target

but it is here,

trying to sign the papers to take part

but their eyes will take me apart

they know i don’t belong

just a possible gateway drug

to ruin their perfect world;

so they don’t look at me

just stand outside,

just watch

like a puppy waiting to be pet

watching her sister go instead
