When we got off the bus, you suddenly introduced yourself and we walked for a minute or so. You were so brave, initiating conversation! I'm usually better at small talk, but I was thrown off, nervous... The time came for me to turn onto my street. I just asked your name again and said "Thanks for chatting."
After 30 seconds of walking home I was full of regret. I missed you already. Later I made a list of things I should have said to you. I got home and paced for about 20 minutes before I put on my shoes and ran back to the bus stop. What I felt was so strong I thought you might feel it too, that you'd run back and we'd meet and continue our walk, our conversation. And I swear I saw you across the street, near the stop. But I got nervous again and just kept walking... I
chickened out again! No, I took a deep breath then turned around to chase after you. But you were gone. Was that really you...? Or was it my imagination, seeing what I wanted to see. I wandered for hours, wanting something, waiting for something that never came.
I barely slept last night. I stayed up writing music, filled with new emotion...
I woke up to the image of your face, your smile.
You're haunting me!
I realize it's weird posting this here... The rest of this page is jokes or creepy offers. And I don't want to seem needy, a hopeless romantic. It sounds cheesy, but I just can't stop thinking about you. I hope dor another chance to keep talking.... I'll wait at that bus stop at that same time whenever I can. To meet you again... To tell you "Sorry I didn't keep walking with you. Can we continue where we left off?"
When you feel a connection, be brave. Like she was, be brave and just keep talking, keep walking. Take a chance...
