Asking questions

one can't hide
love or a cough
this time
you got the love
I got the cough
or to be accurate
the stuffy nose
the sneezing

this time
I got the better deal

So why do I keep coming back
to you
am I in denial?
do I just love to be loved
by selected people
of course
or am I still looking
for that long-lost sister?

Love thyself
says the philosopher

or maybe
it's so nice to see you
I want to be your friend
but I don't trust you
so it's the old
come here
go away
can I just be your friend?
