and me, I failed to understand that I’m a shadow of your man. you found a debutante. worthy of epic denouement. a foil flattered by the inattention. the sundance kid. who needs a life when there’s a life who needs you? cold cocked by laxity. anthropologic scrutiny. could you indulge me in this one convention? I’m standing by to light your cigarette (that was my cigarette), and burn your castle down. left my life alone (moving toward you). tried to find a home (I adored you). soon I was to find (waiting for you). home it wasn’t mine (what else could I do?).
