You meet me here, almost every night…
And I? Honestly, I would stay up every night past my own adult bed time just to talk to you. Because you’re a different person. Not so guarded; not so afraid; not a sarcastic dick.
You’re sweet. And you say genuine things that I never hear, and not from you. It could all be a joke and I could be the punch line, but for now I’m going to enjoy the nights where I stay up late and wait for the wall to come down, and you say something that makes my whole day worthwhile.
And then, I sleep.
