JENNY (FRIENDZONE) PART 1
Frank Ocean, Forrest Gump, my version
I fell for those condescending cheers
You always confirmed my worst fears
That I’m your favorite pastime.
You are always on my mind
Yet I’m always standing in line
We’re not talking speed skating either.
I’m always the bottom feeder
Getting what the others have left behind.
If I’m receiving the brunt of the neglect and
oversight and abuse
You made your life choice
For loving you I make no excuse.
Lovers you’ve had many, I haven’t loved any.
Here I am waiting for you, as you return from seeing the world.
You will always be my girl, Jenny!
Even if you return worse for the wear,
I will be at your bedside as you close your eyes this final time
With a tear in each eye.
