Last night I received a text (in bold letters) and here’s the answer in an undaunted even slightly aggressive and poetic manner.
You pissed at me because I don’t text at night?
No because I used to and you never bothered to reply
Once in a while, sent me an emoticon
What is that even supposed to imply?
You pissed at me because I don’t call?
You haven’t since I left
Two years ago
It’s time you outgrow
Because I didn’t give the appropriate reaction
When we spoke in BP?
Is that when you made me wait
Came half and hour late
Fixated on my weight?
Because I’m not begging for my t-shirt,
For every detail of your life?
As far as I can remember
We painted the tee together
I’d gladly parcel it to you
It’s not an issue
Because I’m this narcissistic science bitch?
Narcissistic? Yes but never a bitch
Science has nothing to do
This is how you’ve always been
We were intellectually
But never emotionally akin
Because I made friends you don’t like?
I never questioned
Your choice of friends
Then, why this sudden urge
To make amends?
Is it because they too
Couldn’t understand you?
Look, are we even friends anymore?
After you’ve read so far
It’d be surprising if I said yes
But I’m a person of my word
I meant it when I said
I wouldn’t change you for the world
You can give me the answer, and whatever it is,
I’d take it gladly.
I bet my answer caught you off guard
But it wasn’t written with disregard
I’m a terrible friend,
I told you earlier.
And lonelier and moodier
Just say what’s in you head
And let it be over with.
I just did though
I’ve been holding this in
For a really long time
Our relationship is based on lunacy
Often bordering on the sublime
