Please, Don't Sit There...

I wrote this poem for my writer's group this week. I guess it's a reaction to the feelings I am having over some people in my life that I wish didn't mean so much to me.


Please, Don't Sit There

I've dethroned enough people to see this coming,
This "kiss my feet" mentality.
That look you give me that says it all:
"You owe me everything."

And yet.

I've once again left that seat unguarded,
Even fluffed the cushion for you.
I'm not strong enough to oust another king.
So please, don't sit there.

Ouch, I sense a very painful history behind this poem.
