Anti-Hero | Poetry Interlude

Why are you in love with the anti-hero?
I’m not anything to anyone but myself.
I’m only good when I choose to be.
But you are held captive in your affection.

Are we in this together?
What we have here – is constantly unclear.
Different races, like contrasting cuts of leather.
I may be crazy – You may be weird.

Are we in this together?
You have gods I never heard of before.
You’re an introvert – like I was, too.
I say “Hello” but you shut the door. . .

Are we in this together?
He was just striving to give life substance.
Or lay to rest anxiety. . . depression. . .
She just wanted to give writing a chance.

Are we in this together?
Maybe communication is the thing we lack.
If you want to try and make this work. . .
When I leave a comment, do you promise to write back?
