There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just say it.
I met someone.
It was an accident.
I wasn’t looking for it. I wasn’t on the make.
It was a perfect storm.
He said one thing, I said another.
Next thing I knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation.
Now there’s this feeling in my gut.
He might be the one.
He’s completely nuts, in a way that makes me smile – highly neurotic.
A great deal of maintenance required.
He is you, that’s the good news.
The bad is that I don’t know how to be with you right now.
And it scares the shit out of me.
Because if I’m not with you right now,
I have this feeling we’ll get lost out there.
It’s a big, bad world full of twists and turns,
And people have a way of blinking and missing the moment,
The moment that could’ve changed everything.
I don’t know what’s going on with us,
And I can’t tell you why you should waste a leap of faith on the likes of me.
But damn, you smell good, like home.
And you make excellent coffee.
That’s got to count for something, right?
