Three's a crowd
And you never liked those much
But when you're all alone
One of us
Could still you whisper
And it's a shame
Because I always heard you scream

Two is just right
If the other is just right too
Perhaps you've solved that puzzle
And I'm just missing you
And it's a shame
Because I always counted on us being together

One is where I find myself
Both on the clock and on my own
I tried with someone else
Only to find I'd rather be alone
And it's a shame
Because I never minded before

So why should it bother me now?

The author's comments:
I decided to revisit and flesh out the poems from my work "Paragon." I ask you to read that as well, as it gets the original meaning better.
