It takes me a while to realize that
What I’m feeling is actually boredom.
After the immense effort it takes me to say something or react in this state
No one should ever be unexcited.
I’m sure it would have been easy to not notice this feeling.
To have been tired, yawned, and moved on.
It is however important to know it.
To put a finger on this vexing numbness
This dull juiceless droning in the head.
So all those times
When it so happens that you’re relationship’s feeing a little flat and some faraway admirer
Suddenly begins to pay you attention,
Don’t let it progress,
Let the apparition remain.
When you particularly like a certain lover’s way of tossing his head,
Don’t tell him.
The mystery might cease.
