We both like our espressos black,
We both have a passion for Paris and New York,
We both like the opera and Hemingway,
We both have the Dire Straits as our most played band on Spotify.
We might very well be in love.
For nine months, I was in a hole,
Now my heart is racing again.
I should protect it from another nine months of pain
But I look at him, across the coffee table, and can’t stop smiling
(I feel silly… Much like when I was fifteen).
He smiles back and I swear there’s a sparkle in his gaze
Oh yes, we are in love!!!!
(And then I just stare at his very sexy arms…)
