A Tweet For You

The other day you were passing by in your car and I was about to tell you.

Friday night I was going to SMS you to tell you.

On Saturday, I knew I was going to see you and I was about to tell you.

But I didn’t.

Do you know the song “Leave Right Now” by Will Young? In it, he says, “I think I better leave right now, before I fall any deeper.” For the past two years, I have always had those lyrics in mind whenever I felt I was falling for people. I always left before falling deeper for all those who entered my life, and then left it; I never saw myself with any of them in the future. But YOU… You are an exception…

Do you know Lisa Hannigan’s “I Don’t Know?” She sings about how she doesn’t know anything about her love interest, but still she is still interested and is “in for the game.”

So here I am, admitting that I don’t know what countries you have been to, I don’t know if you write letters, if you panic on the phone, I don’t know if you are a morning person or if you’re at your best when the sun goes down, I don’t know if you can dance or if you ever did, I don’t know if you can cook, I don’t know if your heart was ever broken, I don’t know your favorite singer, I don’t know your childhood crushes…

But at the same time, I know that you drive, I know that you swim, I know that you can’t draw, I know that you are too shy to dance and I have never witnessed you doing so, I know that you are a book person, and would rather curl up with a novel any day rather than go partying, and I know that I can talk to you and I can be silent with you and I truly enjoy doing both.

I want to cook for you, I want to listen to you tell me of your childhood dreams, I want to take you to my favorite places because I am certain you will enjoy them, I want to make you smile like you are always able to make me smile, and I want to dance with you.

But before we get into all of that, I need to tell you I’m one of the biggest messes you will ever meet, but I know what I want.

And what I want is you.

To sum it all up, there are so many things we already know and so many things we have yet to discover, and to quote Lisa, I’m game.
