supporting cast

Some of us are not the first choice
Not the significant other
Not even the best friend
Some of us are supporting cast
We may be the lead in our own story
But have no lines in another's
Maybe we're a lone wolf
Which sounds really romantic
Except for the separate part
The table for one part
The feeling like an outcast part
Some of us even prefer the quiet
A single bed in a studio apartment
A noted lack of roomates
No disruptions or chaos
Being alone isn't all bad
It's being lonely that sucks
Not knowing who to call
Not having holiday plans
Not being an emergency contact
Some of us know we arent the favorite
And this is the introverts dilemma
Maintaining much needed relationships
While sustaining much needed space.
