Dear Fellow Homecoming Royalty

I love you
though you hate me
and that’s okay
You see, my feelings for you
aren’t romantic
Therefore they need no reciprocity
I don’t admire you
for your eyes, your lips
lovely though they are
unless you, your attributes
contribute in some way
to the crystals in your crown
the sash across your chest
I don’t care where you are now
unless it has to do with
the poised prince
whose timeless smile
I hold in my heart
