new friends

do you know how unexpected it was
that you wanted to hear my story?
did you know I was surprised
because my stomach hurt from laughing?
it took me so off guard
when what you offered, gave me answers

see, I've gotten used to waiting.

did you guess that I'd be close to tears
because you said "that makes sense"?
did you know you threw me for a loop
when you saw that I was down?
for some reason
it's hard to accept

I guess I'm scared of getting used to it
afraid to let myself hope
what if I lose it again?
ah, but pain is only tangibility
the currency of value
proof of richness.
it'll come
even if it's taken yet again
it always comes.

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
