A really cute gent that I was just starting to get to know sent me a freaking poem. Er, HTF am I supposed to respond to this?!?!?!??!
You entered today, a world of mine with such stealth I hardly noticed.
Your arrival wasn't heralded by trumpets, nor crowds... only
A soft breeze against my leg as you passed, like a kiss on the wind.
You entered today, a world of mine and I am glad
Yesterday I was only me, struggling for what I didn't know.
Today...today I am one of the two things meant to be.
One of the two things meant to happen and share.
Today I have you.
You are a flower in springtime, opening to the rain..
A burst of color across a once barren landscape.
A dream, only noticed on the lonely hilltops has become
A breath of new.
And the newness is you
BARF BARF BARF! I am not a poetry kind of gal! I find poetry EXHAUSTING. Pointless! I tune out as soon as I see a poem. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Just say what you mean and don't try to get all flowery and shit. See how sophisticated I am?!?! So now I am trying to find a way to respond to this damn dude and this damn poem, and EXTRICATE myself out of this situation.
