I hugged you and said “I wish you could speak to me in other languages besides this one.”

You wanted to try, I wanted to want to try.

You talked to me about bills, cleaning, and work.

Sometimes people make small talk because it’s the only way they know how to communicate.

I always appreciated effort.

You finally get it. You connect everything
the music, the movies
hearts are gushing everywhere. She’s everywhere
and you are in love. When she looked at me
I instantly felt warm. I remembered to breathe.
 Now, sometimes I can’t even look her in the eye.
