She: Enemy?

March 30, 2012
By Anonymous

She excels in everything, by doing the bare minimum.
She gets the perfect boyfriend, yet lets him slip away.
She is friends with everyone, and doesn't even try.
I put a brave face on every day, and watch as people pass me by.

She gets a scholarship, yet knows she'll turn it down.
She knows she'll get in anywhere, but still feigns concern.
She didn't even bother with her applications, yet they came out perfectly.
I tried my hardest, and got through just barely.

She only gets one mark more, without a glance at a book.
She is admired by everyone, winning them with a look.
She is just better in every way, from the moment she was born.
I just fade into the background, and wish to be no more.

I hate her venomously, and I hate myself for it.
I love her dearly, and wish her well.
She's my best friend and my worst enemy.
And I don't know what to do.
