<conversation and connections>
We don’t say much when we are together;
the world could collapse around us, the
stars could fall like raindrops, and the moon could pierce the sun and even then, silence, golden silence, has become a silver lining in my noisy heart. Who could have known that the less said, says the most? Who could have known that sitting with you, in a tree, and counting the stars while we talk about everything from Aristotle to Kanye, could be the most wonderful thing that happened to me?
I cherish the silence as much as I cherish you; you, you, you; the one who probably doesn’t want me.
I was wholly lost; I could never put into words how I felt, until I listened to
90’s and early 00’s R&B. You, you, you; whose eyes I helplessly fell in love with;
a map to your heart, I follow along because how can I not? How can I not admire you when it’s you who taught
me conversation and connection is the most vital ingredient, when falling in love.
