Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie

Front Row

do you go to the dungeon
to find out how to make peace with your
days in the dungeon writing a letter to you
didn't make me feel any more peaceful
then how I felt when we weren't speaking
because I didn't cop to what I did.
I can't love you
because we're supposed to have professional boundaries.
I'd like you to be schooled and in awe
as though you were kissed by god full on the lips.
I'm in the front row the front row with popcorn
I get to see you see you close up
I'm too tired to recount the unpleasantries
one by one one minute
I want to banish you the next I want to be on
a deserted island with you along
with my three favorite cd's ambivalent yet in your
bed we've yet to acknowledge what really happened
slid into the ditch
I have this overwhelming loss of ambition
we said let's name thirty good reasons why
we shouldn't be together
I started by saying things like "you smoke",
"you live in new jersey (too far)"
You started saying things like "you belong to the world"
all of which could have been easily refuted,
but the conversation was hypothetical
I am totally short of breath for you why can't you shut
your stuff off.....
I'm in the front row the front row with popcorn
I get to see you see you close up and
I laughed until my lungs hurt
I love how you bust my chops you don't always
feel seen sometimes you feel erasable unfortunately
I cannot reciprocate in my current state
I think
we should be careful of how much time we spend together....
for a while i'm speaking you know how much you hate
to be interrupted maybe spend some time alone to fill up
your proverbial cup
so that it doesn't always have to be about you
i've been wanting your undivided attention
I like the fact that you're nothing like me
are you not burdened by the lack of perspective people
have of your charmed life
i'm in the front row the front row with popcorn
I get to see you see you close up you never meant to be
ungrateful nor held up to be whipped or wept for certainly
not analysed prodded at more ways than one apparently
you've been misrepresented dealing
with the concept of arrows being slung towards
your outrageous fortune
i'm not mad at you guardian
i'm mad at myself for spending so much time with you
and your jeckyl and hydeness
i'm glad i figuratively slapped you on the wrist
you laughed a wicked laugh and
said "come here let me clip your wings!"
(i know he's blood,
but you can still turn him away
you don't owe him anything)
"raise the roof" he yelled "yeah raise the roof!"
I yelled back.
(unfortunately you needed a health scare to reprioritize.)
no thanks to the soap box.
having me rile against them
won't make an ounce of difference......
i'm in the front row the front row with popcorn.
I get to see you see you close up oh the things i've done
for you many a sitch a friend a man's been left for you
oh the books i've read for you the tongues
i've bitten for you many
a new city for you many a risk taken for you
(not a single regret)
