You ever see somebody walk past...
but they're in a place that you can't reach without extreme action. Like walking past the coffee shop you're sitting in, or in the car next to you at a red light, or leaving the bar you're walking into. And you wonder what it would be like if courage coursed through your veins for the briefest of moments, just enough so that you're past the point of no return. So you go through with it.
Because, fuck it.
What do you say? What CAN you say?
"Hi." Good start, then what?
"I saw you in the window and was floored by your beauty" or
"your face made me curious" - ok, uh, weird - how about
"I've already planned my future and you're a part of it and let me tell you -- no, let me show you how. Take my hand, follow me and it might not be perfect but I can promise you that we'll be happy, and life will be fun, because how could a love story that begins like this not be given the life to continue until we share the tale with our friends and families? About how I chased you down the street with an empty mind and a full heart, hoping that the latter would compensate for the former, and you would, if only for a second, feel what I felt the moment I laid eyes on you, twenty-five seconds ago."
Yeah, maybe that would work. But we'll never know,
because I stayed in my seat and wrote this instead.
