That’s was your greeting, you know, the one that made my heart race so fast it could have outrun the fastest man.
It was that first conversation that made me love you, instead of, you know, just want your body. even if i had never spoken to you before, just an admirer.
You were smart, funny, and charming. I fell. Harder when you told me I was the cutest child you’d ever seen when i showed you the pictures of my family.
Harder still when you never laughed at my oddities and obsessions. But when I knew I was totally enveloped in love, was when you broke my heart, came back to fix it, then broke it three more times after that when you went to her.
I Can’t forgive you for that, not that you knew I loved you, love you, but i can try to forget.
Friends, I hope. Well, maybe someday.
