And just for thought...
A pale ale for me, a darker stout for you, I sat ready.
So many things I wanted to tell you,
too many things I could not say
because I wanted, needed, to protect myself.
You gave me answers, the ones I had prepared myself for,
the ones I was expecting.
Another round and a platter later, we were still laughing.
Looking at your smile, hearing your uncertainties about love,
I realized building a friendship with you was
more important then forcing a disaster.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
