FOR MY ROOMMATE'S BOYFRIEND
I'm the one you stay up with
long after she's fallen asleep.
I'm the one you talk with
about the most random things in the world.
I'm the one you laugh with
when we hear references from our favourite shows.
I'm the one you joke with
when she is in the bathroom applying her third layer of makeup.
I'm the one you cried with
during that time when that thing that should never have happened, did.
I'm the one you argue with
when we're both absolutely, completely certain we're right.
I'm the one you ask for advice
about what to say when she's having her tantrums again.
I'm the one you thank
when I help you understand her side of things.
(even when I don't really want to)
I'm the one you call best friend,
but not the one you'd choose if you had to.
I'm the one
who will never make you choose.
Stupidly, I'm one of two
hopelessly in love with you.
