I can’t believe that I could
actually feel this much about you
but sometimes
it’s the people
we didn’t see coming
that just sweep us away
and we spend half of the time
trying to figure out
why is this happening

to think
the first time I saw you
I thought it was too easy
but now it’s flipped and
I’m all worked up
taking sashimi-thin
slices of my own soul
and practically putting
my poetry-writing fingers
in a blender

she took a single look at me
and told me for sure
you were gonna break me

she knew.
