I found the myth that was not meant to be,
the sophisticated, simple you,
and the unpolished, complex me;
and everyone laughed because
they could not see that you were as lonely
as I was.
Me, with my living ghost,
my shell of a man who forgot how to feel...
if he ever did know.
You with your void.
Absolutely absurd, yes.
But something neither of us expected,
I was never fooled.
I knew you wanted me as I wanted you.
But you fooled yourself.
It was enough for you to look my way,
to look at me as a decent, intelligent woman,
and not as a slut to be put in her place.
and I knew you meant it,
and I wanted to thank you,
to thank you.
The way you looked at me
was more than any words you could ever say.
I will always love you for that.
I have loved before,
and I am certain to love again,
but I will give you a chance if you want
to let people laugh to hide their jealousy.
