What I wanted to say was…

Yeah,
so,

what
I wanted to say was,

well,

it’s
hard to put into words.

Umm.

I
was surprised by you.

Basically.

I
mean,

I’d
been really into this other guy

and
then that went south

and
when you came along,

well,

I
mean,

I’m
not a slut or anything

but
I wasn’t looking for anything,

serious.

And
I didn’t think you were either.

But
then suddenly you’re like,

‘I
think I’m losing a lot tonight’

and
saying how attractive

certain
parts of my body were!

And
not the usual parts!

You
caught me completely unawares,

and
I didn’t know what to say

– I
didn’t even know what to feel.

But
now,

well,
I’m very clear,

that
I,

umm.

I
still can’t speak.

My
heart is in my mouth,

and
maybe I’ll never know what to say.
