They say you fall in love 5 times in your life.
And when you’re in love its all about –
the little things.
Brief moments in time and small quirks that have you
Until its too late and there’s no going back…
even if you want to.
I’ve found my five
and fallen hard.
Five times and each
too many ways to count.
But the least I can do is try.
One: the funny one
Sharing secret smiles…
because we’re the only ones that get it.
Eye rolls and fond smirks…
because I should have got it,
Two: the serious one
3am conversations stretched out across a pool table about:
being true to yourself
Three: the sensitive one
Watching heartbreaking movies
box of Kleenex nearby
because we know tears are coming.
An ear to listen and a sweatshirt to cry in…
because “That’s what they’re made for.”
Four: the inspiring one
Eyes bright, grand gestures
Passionate words tumbling from a mouth that can’t stop
Five: the nerdy one
With serious conversations on updates and metabuilds.
Creating and revising strategies.
and its effectiveness.
Always looking for another game.
So yes, its funny
One life – five times – one person
you had me falling,
What happens now,
when I knew by the first:
it wasn’t the same for you.
