Five

​Its funny,

y’know.

They say you fall in love 5 times in your life.

Truly.

Deeply.

Passionately.

Only 5.

And when you’re in love its all about –

the little things.

Brief moments in time and small quirks that have you

falling,

        falling,

                falling

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,

but didn’t.

Two: the serious one

3am conversations stretched out across a pool table about:

the future

being true to yourself

difficult choices

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

Thoughts

Ideas

Dreams

Passionate words tumbling from a mouth that can’t stop

grinning

Five: the nerdy one

With serious conversations on updates and metabuilds.

Creating and revising strategies.

Debating min-maxing

and its effectiveness.

Always looking for another game.
So yes, its funny

One life – five times – one person

you had me falling,

                              falling,

                                      falling,

hard.
What happens now,

when I knew by the first:

it wasn’t the same for you.
