The Third Wheel This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

there's not a thing you can do

with the extra sock hanging over your head

when you've already got two

we all know it takes two to tango

so I'll just dance my way out of your life

but I have no other place to go

a crowd consists of few

and a couple is company

so I guess I'm meant to lose.

You could say I'm a third wheel

because that's exactly how I feel

so I'll make this my last appeal -

I know you are used to being a bicycle

but let me be the third wheel on your tricycle.
