Sometimes I think the tumble of words that fall out of my mouth might ruin me. The highs and lows of them, frenetic and misplaced, resting in sadness and pacing with excitement, they all scatter like unnamed raindrops, washing away all sense of calm to be replaced instead with the pouring of pure feeling.
In my mind I imagine this is not normal. People do not possibly feel so much all at once, all the time, people don’t carry a cacophony of heart thoughts beneath their skin, it’s impossible, improbable, and too much for the sane.
But you are the antithesis of normal, you translate the language of my heart and name the raindrops and make words of scrabble pieces of feelings and
I love you for impossibility of this love becoming possible.
