   I can't help but be attracted to you.

This isn't about love.

And it's not about hate.

It's about making choices that

leave you stuck between the lines.

But you're not different so I'm not supposed

To like you.

I have to mock you, degrade you.

Even though difference is a thing of the past.

Slacker, stoner, skater you're none of those.

But I don't care. Your normality is my affection.

I want to tame you.

Bring you to my side.

Even though my heart is only half in the war.
