Interesting

Interesting

i need to be
interesting
so i found me
somebody
who needs to be
interesting too

now
me and my partner
sit inside
all day and night
as the paint peels
day after day
and night after night
as the ceiling drips
and season
after season
as the cat
shits
in the bathtub
again
we sit
at our table
telling one another
we're interesting

sometimes
i take the lead
to say,
"you're interesting"
to which my partner
always replies,
"you're interesting, too"

but sometimes
i let my partner lead
with,
"you're interesting"
cause sometimes
you've got to change things
to keep it
interesting

sometimes
we even count
how many thousands of times
in the day 
we tell one another
we're interesting
because
again
sometimes
you got to change things
a little bit
to keep it
interesting

but
to be completely honest
i find my partner
boring as hell
but i can't let on
and i can't let go
cause the nectar
is so sweet
of being assured
i'm not
boring
like she is
