"I used to build dreams about you."
"Because this is the only way to change.
To want. To ask.
To be an unlocked house
in a neighborhood of robbers.
Palms open, Arms extended. Voice unshaking.
Broadening yourself like a target to say
“Aim. Shoot. I am ready.
I invite hope in
I know failure may follow."
"Look, let me put it this way: with me, you’re number one and there isn’t even a number two."
Those damn eyes
"We could be old, retired and
on rocking chairs enjoying
porch side lemonade and I’d
still try to impress you."
"Go all the way with it. Do not back off. For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters."
