an examination of being "stuck in the friend zone" from the perspective of Kantian ethics.
I am not just a boy... I am an all-consuming fire!
Demolishing the boundaries under which you thought you had me subdued!

I am
Not
Just
Another one of your
So-called friends

I am
Not just a means
To an end

I'm in
Possession of
The same inherent dignity
As any other human being

[And] If
We
Are the
Ultimate
Representatives
Of moral agency
[Well] I'll believe that when I see it verified empirically.

I need more than just your appreciation
I need more than just your attention

My desire for you burns with the intensity of a thousand gonorrhea infections
Even knowing you [alone] could never [fully] satisfy
You alone could never fulfill the essence of my being
But it is not for us to use one another to indulge the lustful passions in our souls
And what is the soul but a convenient title we've given the electro-chemical interactions in our brains

I need more than just your appreciation
I need more than just your attention
But what right do I have to expect this?
I have no entitlement to it
Love can only be given freely
Never under any obligation
