    countless times i’ve been asked
    ‘how did you get such an amazing life?’

    if i’m honest, i’m not quite sure
    ‘i was just born with it, i guess’

    at this point, they usually roll their eyes
    ‘i don’t think you realize how lucky you are’

    if i’m honest, it’s not all that great
    sometimes it gives me a big ego
    other times it gets me some action
    most times it just gets in the way

    sometimes it gets lonely
    sometimes it loses its perkiness
    but that changed
    when i found you

    if i’m honest, i didn’t think much of it then
    but later i realized my life needed you in it
    to fill it to the brim with joy
    to make it feel complete again

    you knock on my apartment door
    ‘can i come in?’

    if i’m honest, i didn’t expect you to be here
    ‘yes . . . please’

    you exhale
    raspy breaths
    as you enter

    i squeal
    tears in my eyes
    ‘i need you . . .

    COME in my life!’
