They’ll be another just like you
You’re not the only one I’m not the only one
It’s early days. Early days. I can talk to him with such ease, such veracity. I remind myself, early days. Will the ease of conversation wane as it has so many others? Words are my all. I am never at a loss with him. I am myself, no masks and no filters. With others I find my voice takes on a new sound. With him I hear myself as I hear myself. I haven’t heard that in too long. I feel at ease. I feel more than contentment. I feel happiness. Not sporadic bouts of smiles, constant joy. It is early days, but I am content and I am happy.
