Indirection re-entered

Object of my studies
I tried to be a scholar in you.

Object of my sorrows
I kept worrying about you.

I stopped studying you
I stopped worrying about you.

Because all the time I spend studying you
Was a time I spend not being you.
Not being me.

Enough with watching me live.
Enough with worrying about me.
Enough with this distance.
Enough with detachment.

Enough with the indirection.

    This attempt is closer to what I tried to achieve with my previous #NaPoWriMo entry.

    It it also a metaphor for my work during my therapy sessions.
