Are you my future?

As the rain thundered around I wondered if this was a good idea?

How could one swipe end up in success, when the world was offering up such a tempest?

It was impossible, wasn't it?

NO. As she rounded the corner and the light hit her hair, I had a thought.

My life was now complete.

My future had arrived and all I could think about was my phone.

Saying yes would remove me from the market. Was I ready to give up the chance?

Was I ready to commit and change the course of my wagon?

Could a virtual dream turn into a modern love story?

Absolutely. As her mouth opened and the greeting was delivered, I was enveloped.

Moby Dick. I was ready to be devoured and to do so with a smile on my face.

This was how my life ended and I was able to paint a grin on my permanently frowing face.

Was I ready?

NO, but I was happy and that is what life is about, isn't it?

Are you ready to be swallowed whole?
