This is who I would like
No, this is who I must have. Let's be honest.
A woman who is interested deeply so.
Who loves philosophical conversations
Oddball trivia, the mental equivalent of bright shiny objects
Who reads what I write and says things like:
I'm not sure I understand
but when I read this it makes me think
how the gifts we give and
the gifts we gave, once given
could be different things to the receiver
and that could be okay.
At first glance
I didn't see you
in what you wrote here.
Then I realized
I haven't really seen you yet!
A woman who knows that we bring who we are
to what we read
to a relationship.
And that we give away a little of ourselves
to relate deeply.
I'd make a life with a woman like that.
