The Great Thing About You...
Hopefully Romantic Amidst Panic
The great thing about you...
The great thing about you, is that you fight for the little guy.
The great thing about you, is that you fight for what’s right.
The great thing about you, is that you manage to compliment me while teasing me.
The great thing about you, is that you look into my eyes; you look into my weirdness; you look past my dorky facade; my complete lack of coolness; you see me for what I am; you make me feel great about it.
The great thing about you, is that you tell me what I feel, even when I don’t want to hear it from your lips.
The great thing about you is that when I’m ready to surrender, you save me through a text, Facebook messenger, or through one within our equivocal paradise.
The great thing about you, is that you’re not great...
You pretend to revel in my idealization of you, when in reality you’re insecure.
You don’t take compliments well.
Your way with words is sometimes self-defeating.
You sometimes make me want to yell; sometimes you make me want to cry; sometimes you’re just a guy.
You’re just a guy, but still the guy I awaited.
Awaited throughout high school, community college, and University.
Awaited while watching The Holiday, Bridget Jones’s Diary, When Harry Met Sally, Two For the Road, The Notebook
Awaited after my eighteenth birthday; awaited after my 21st birthday right of passage and the shots of Patron, Bacardi, Jameson and random addresses that followed.
Awaited during my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eight, and ninth job, all the existential murkiness between.
Awaited and who I became certain would never come, might not exist.
The great thing about you, is that you awaited until the right time.
The great thing about you...is the great thing about me.
