I’m not looking forward to seeing you
Or to being within the same building
It’s not very nice of me, I know
But I grew to despise you in our time together.
I cringe involuntarily when I see someone
Who has many similar physical qualities
I also start to feel disgust at some friends
When they talk in the same manner.
I will put this aside, however
In order to play the game
Let’s see how well I can pretend
To stand your very presence.
