Paper Doll

I wanted to be friends with someone. So I played by the rules. I never criticized. I never made a scene. I held my tongue. I smiled when I should smile. I cried my tears alone. I never lashed out. I accepted ghosting. I accepted bad behavior. And over time, I morphed into a one-dimensional cardboard cut-out. 

A paper doll.
