Behind the Scenes

Red eyes

Rusted fur

Imperfect rhymes

But full of words


"How do you feel about me?"

Ahh, I wondered when you'd ask.

You are fun, in a stimulating way. You're a thinker. You sharpen your wit every time I see you. As we spar, I get a better sense of your reactions and humor.

We have surprising similarities, and you keep me on my toes. First it was music, though I didn't want to admit it. Then a connection over 3D modeling of all things. We both love rich stories and strong friendships. I want to be around you long enough to see if perhaps we can have one of our own.

You make me see myself from your perspective and wonder what you see. I want to second guess my every move. Instead I end up ignoring that, being more truly myself than I am with many others. Dorky, thoughtful, sincere.

The answer is simple, but its simplicity is deceptive and confusing.

"I like you."

I think it might be the beginning of a strong friendship.
