if people were rain

Friday, July 20, 2012

I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch and wrap my arms around her and sleep ... Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk -- thinking if people were rain, I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane.
