Just sitting by you makes the hairs on my arms shiver, my heart beats fast and I sweat a little. I’ll never have the courage to tell you way I feel but somehow your presence makes me feel a little more real.
I try to talk to you with the power of my thoughts, these social constraints are enough to make me faint. We’ve been sitting in silence for hours and you turn to me and say ‘I like you being here.’ …I’m stunned and gone is the fear.
