Making friends is hard for people like us with brains in our stomachs
and mouths on our hands so let’s make it easy.
I don’t want to know how your day was –
it was good, mine was good, end of conversation –
I don’t want to talk about the weather –
it’s sunny, it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, it’s getting chilly, end of conversation –
I want to talk about what gives you that feeling,
you know the one –
that feeling as if you have the whole world in your palm and
you could do anything or be anyone –
I want to know what gives you that feeling so maybe
one day I can give it to you.
I want to know at what point you were your saddest –
I want to know so maybe the next time I see the signs
I will already have the warm blanket and hot chocolate waiting.
Let’s talk about love, loss, fear, anger –
let’s talk about life.
Making friends is hard so let’s make it easy.
Nice to meet you, I’m damaged goods, I wear my heart on my sleeve,
I don’t talk when I should and talk too much when I shouldn’t,
I have a lot of opinions, I don’t know exactly what I want or how to get it
but I know one day I will get it
I would do anything for my friends and do very little for myself –
Nice to meet you.
I think we’ll get along just fine.
