Sometimes it feels like you’re on the verge of a breakthrough.

As if you are about to recognize that I am not just particles of dust lumped together, floating aimlessly in the universe–

That my eyes are the kind that can spot your dimple in a sea of smiling faces;

That my ears are sensitive enough to hear your soulful baritone in a cacophony of sounds;

That my lips are the type that can taste your scent from miles away…

Sometimes, it feels like it might finally dawn on you how this could be more than just friendship.

As I live and breathe, I swear that these are the best times.
