Okay I’ve been practicing this in a mirror and it doesn’t sound right so
how about I just say what comes to mind and hope for the best?
“I think you’re pretty.
Pretty amazing that is.
I’ve been staring at you for a while (I hope you don’t mind),
I’m just a little bit star struck with you and that face of your’s.
I mean – it’s not the only reason I like you,
I like the way you spend time with me
without seeming like you’re doing me a favour.
The sounds you make out of your word hole make me smile too.
Oh! Sometimes they make me laugh as well,
I really like it when they do that. You’re just… great!
If I had a megaphone I’d let the whole world know
or at least my neighbours, but my pay won’t cover the costs.”
Damnit, I don’t think this is coming out right.
I’m all tied-tongue or whatever people call it.
“Okay, I’m making a fool of myself here
so, I wrote some words down
on a piece of paper and want you to read it
so, here you go:”
Dear Mr Man,
you’re special. Like day-off-school special.
No… you’re more than that.
You’re real special! You’re…
you’re catching-a-rare-pokemon-on-the-first-try special.
You’re finding-a-shiny-pokemon special!
You’re catching-a-shiny-and-rare-pokemon-on-the-first-try special!!
Yeah, that sounds about right.
So, Mr Man, I like this thing we have going on.
I admit that for someone who writes for a hobby
this might not be the most eloquent thing ever
but I hope you get what I’m saying.
I like you’re face. In fact, I like you.
Let me know if you like my face too.
