My Platonic Valentine
Waiting for you while suppressing the drive,
Pilfering glances, the will won't subside,
I've waited for eons, so what's one more night?
Indifferent to truisms that I've lived and lied,
Indifferent to internal battles I've waged,
Indignant that you haven't seen what's been saved,
Denying us both of this fantasy made,
Frustrated in friendship, trying to save face,
Your kindness annihilates all that you nurse,
Confined in your arms, both my gallows and church,
You can't see my torment, makes it all the worse,
I wilt in your gaze, one more name in your purse,
I hate me with you, I'll still rush to get back,
I'll wait here for you, though you'll never know that
