Listen to this while you read... Big K.R.I.T- Serve this Royalty
I was at work( I work at a very high end place) dealing with big time, rich assholes. But the more I mingle, and greet, the more I realize they're some of the best people I've met. I'm dealing with a rich table. All Iranians... As they rattle off their professions for me, one is a doctor, the fat one is a lawyer, the other fat one is a chef, one is a banker etc..., as they're throwing around blue bills like it's nothing.
As they're in their mid 40's, playing the "sac tap" game with each other, making me laugh as the fat lawyer doubles over in pain, as one laments "It's funny right? We've been this way for 25 years". As the fat lawyer gets up, and gives his friend a kiss on the cheek, and laments to me, "I've known him since I was 8 years old. My best friend". It was just great to see.
So, I palled around with them, I was in their circle that night. Helping them wrangle women to their private table and spots, helped them try and get the young 20-25 year old model types, that frequent this spot.
It then hit me... I was just a "Love Thief"... that's what I am. You've seen us, randomly in your circle, at your wedding, even at some special family function. We observe you, then we figure out the mannerisms of the group, we get liberties with the group, give the hugs, and we're right there with the jokes. But you in a drunken stupor, will look at us, and ask a friend, "How long have you known Perkman for?", as they reply, "Just tonight or a few weeks", then your brow will furrow, and a bit of shock, and rage will tweak you, "He acts like he's known us for years..like, What the fuck?"
That's just what it is. I looked at that group of accomplished men, and I got a bit angry at my group. I've changed groups so many times since grade school and college. I'll never have a group where we all spouted off our goals, held each other accountable, helped one another, and all succeeded...
But that's not for me... I'm a true "Double Kid", and I keep trying to find a group to stay with, to have a home with, to have what I saw these men have... I don't have that. I never will. Every group of friends or person I've been close to has been fractured. I've left them or them me, or we just lost touch. On this journey I've undertaken, all I am is Tristan... Tristan from "Legends of the Fall"(Brad Pitt's best role.. fact.).
I will come in, get your love, get your heart, make you care for me... then I'll be lost in the wind.. as the "Road Not Taken" takes me where it goes... I'll long for you, your friendship, a wife.. but it'll never happen.
I'll always just be a "love thief", taking in other people's loves, emotions, and taking in a bit for the journey, living vicariously through you, or your friendships, or happiness, without any of my own... I guess I am an actor, huh?
It's hollow... which is the real me? It is what it is, this the curse of those that "Can fit in with anyone, but can't fit in with anyone"... just the life I was given.
Ambition is a curse... I don't recommend it.
I don't want to die a "love thief"... I truly don't.
