Crushes and Enemies

I've heard people say
Having a crush is healthy
I've heard the same for enemies
And when I don't have a crush
I feel a tiny twinge of discomfort
So there have been times
When I've actively sought out 
Love poem recipients for myself
I remember a time
When I was in a coffee shop
And two chosen individuals of mine
Stood talking
And I thought about how strange
My method of doing things was
Since it has nothing to do with love
And more to do with
Shooing away boredom
Now I just got thinking
I have an enemy now
Not by choice
And less of an enemy than
An antagonist in my story
Whom I'd like to avoid at all costs
So maybe that'll keep me
From partaking in my weird crush habits
But probably not
