i wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. not fuck, like in those movies. not even have sex. just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. but i lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend, and i was gawky and she was gorgeous, and i was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. so i walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, i was drizzle and she was a hurricane.
I am the hope of the universe.
I am the answer to all living things that cry out for peace.
I am the protector of the innocent.
I am a light in darkness.
I am truth.
Ally to god, nightmare to you.
