  • I call it intellectual stimulation, you simply call it conversation. You always seem to disagree, and I always agree to disagree. You refuse to admit it but you oftentimes put words into my mouth and you pick my mind doing just that.

    We burn down the wires almost every night, and talking to you on the phone is by far the longest phone conversations I can probably ever have. This is just among the many firsts with you, and by far my most favorite first with you.

    You said that you have not seen the playful side of me yet, but what is playful to you?
    Contextualization dares to challenge this constant state of arousal.

    Different interpretation can mean different things.

    You said that you can see everything about the person through their eyes, but my eyes do not tell you anything. You sounded firm about that, I wonder if you looked long enough to see me through my eyes.

    I dare not cross the line. You have your fears and I have mine. Whether we admit them or not, they are there and we resist, we dare not contextualize the one thing we are most afraid of.

    Pardon the lack of a better word.

    You are you and I am me, and I am sorry.

    Perhaps all I am to you and all you are to me are but a constant state of arousal, nothing more and nothing less. You stirred something in me and my charms worked just fine on you.

    It is something spontaneous and even reckless. It is vague but ambitious.

    That is all that.

    No metaphors this time.
