    Equivocal Infatuation

    I don't have to wonder why
    I set the bar this high.

    I always feel compelled to impress,
    Take how I talk and how I dress.

    It's the only way for me to swallow
    These flaws that leave me hollow.

    When the pressure builds I fall short,
    Like the time between my quip and your retort.

    I wish I could just be,
    Unaffected by the judgement I might I see.

    You're already there so you'll stay the same,
    But if I changed I'd risk our game.

    You deserve a girl who doesn't care about charades.
    I hope you greet her
    When you meet her
    Before back into the crowd she fades.

    Well done, Toffee.
