Dear "you're so cool"

Posted By on Tue, Jan 8, 2019 at 12:35 PM

I felt the same way: That I knew you in a past life—if you are who I think you are. Let's be honest, you never did let me in. You did every little maneuver to keep me at arm's length even though I let you in. You would make a fuss whenever I tried to plan something in advance and acted like me using a day planner was akin to torture by the Gestapo. You decided to be Josephine Cool and ghost me. I am happy that we didn't work out because it forced me to face a shit ton of ugly truths about what I want in life and who I need and want in it. Sadly, you're not one of them—especially after you blamed me for your depression and not eating and sleeping, even though I offered to pay for a counsellor. I just hope you are treating your current boyfriend better than you did me.

Mutual attraction

Now that we have more than a vague notion of each other, I get the feeling that wherever this goes is going to be good.

Is this love?

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2018 at 5:21 PM

Until now, I thought it was reserved for childhood sweethearts about to say a 70-year goodbye. I thought it took that long to accumulate this emotion—but I'm happily wrong. Nothing more or less matters because I just need her. It's plain and perfect.

Everyone at work thinks that I like you. They're not wrong. You're an intelligent, kind, giving, funny and cold-hearted turdburger.

She’ll be your Queen
What’s it mean when you’re doubtful?
There are other worlds than these...

Gorgeous market

I was hanging out with my daughter looking at the jewelry and you struck up a conversation with me. I wanted to talk for the rest of the day with you.

I think about you all the time

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2018 at 10:39 AM

It’s been almost two years. I miss my partner and my best friend. I miss being silly with you. I miss our little family. We had some stupid arguments. I wish I hadn’t been so stubborn. So many outside factors and stress wrecked our shelter. We were both tired of trying. You used to say you’d come for me in the future. I’ve been trying to reach out. You used to ask me to sing for you, and I was too shy. I just want to sing you love songs and make you breakfast. I want you back.

Guy with the nice eyes

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2018 at 4:25 PM

I like it when you call me in the morning.
I like it when you show up on time or early.
I like your white teeth so nice and pearly.
I love it when you go the long way.
Pick me up and take me to work with you all day.
Every time I see a vehicle similar to yours I think of you.
If you read this and you know who I am...
You could dial my digits and we could grab some grub!
—That girl

Smashing things while drinking beer on Monday night

...Doesn’t un-break my heart. A direct gaze—male though it may be—does intrigue me and lifts my spirits; who are you?

NO, it's better than fine

Posted By on Tue, Jul 17, 2018 at 10:25 AM

I don't just mean your band, but you DO have excellent stage presence and songwriting skills. You're very funny and sweet and awkward and I think it's very cute. You were a good cuddler. Cute dates and snugs would have been plenty. I never wanted anything serious, but I think I scared you. I am not scary. I think you know that too. That's why it happened twice.
Now you barely have anything to say to me. STILL! It's been a little while now, but I'm still sad because you used to invite me to things all the time and I miss that! I miss being your friend, or at least seeing you regularly—and all the people I knew through you.
Thanks for walking me home so many times, I guess. Jam again sometime?

Get well soon

Posted By on Tue, Jul 3, 2018 at 2:38 PM

You can't show up drunk anymore. I can't take care of you all night once every few weeks. I can't love you. I can't watch you push and pull away. It leaves me feeling a sort of terrible. I don't manage very well, and I'm trying so hard to live a good life. I know you are, too, but you're right: you can't care for me in the capacity that I need.

So do as you do. Whatever happened between you and me truly doesn't matter. What does matter is that you get a little better, and a little better, and a little better still. What matters is I can allow my guts to connect to a person who is capable of caring back. Take care of yourself, and please please please: Just be safe.

It seems a bit foolish that I miss you so much. I’ve concluded you’ve given me emotional whiplash, and because of it I don’t know what to believe anymore. Logically I know you miss me. Emotionally it’s harder. Nevertheless, I can’t wait to come meet you across the pond for your birthday. Because I believe in love, and I believe in you. —Happy Birthday My Love
