I've been walking in a smiley daze for days
Almost afraid if I move too fast
I'll stumble and wake up
and the dream will end.

It's been a while since I've had a valentine
it's been forever since I've asked
would you be mine
afraid to move too fast
so the dream won't end.

Maybe a sign
that's what I need
pointing - that way or this
I've been still for too long

I step outside,
slowly, not moving too fast
and in the purple sky,
floating, unsure

a big red balloon
too fast for me to snap a shot
but not so fast for my hand to jot
so I resort to schoolboy rhyme
slowly, so the dream won't end

Aries Sweet, you are stellar. I am having the time of my life!! And to think it all started here on Duke City Fix.

I can't even explain the fun and happiness I have experienced! You are da bomb! Have I told you lately how awesome you are???
Right?! Who would've thought a comment about Ben Harper and a shared interest between "rivalry" teams would have turned into what is something so amazing! The great times have only started and I foresee so much more to come!

Ben Harper! Right. We were comparing Walk Away, and Diamonds on the Inside! We'll have to catch him live one of these days, babe.

Wow. Two Weeks. Only Two Weeks. ALREADY Two Weeks.

Do I say something? Do I play it cool? Nah. I am smitten. She knows. The world knows.

Overwhelmed. Breathless. Longing, aching, hoping, wishing for the next moment.

Will it be funny, poignant, clever, sexy? Will we connect on some common bit of our past, or will we clash on some point of view? I anticipate each encounter with joy, fear, anticipation.

Breathless.

Just over a year ago I really wanted to go to Dave Denny's Memorial Concert at El Rey and didn't have anyone to go with. I left a message on DCF to a certain sweet member and asked if he would like to join me. Seems that invitation turned into something wonderful! We've been together ever since!

I'm happy for you guys!

I wonder those things too all the time. Two weeks, feels like beyond two months! Who knows... maybe more. What comes next? Good, bad, fun, emotional, or whatever our choice may be. We are together and I've never been so happy!

Awe! Thank you Adelita! Congrats to you too!

I'm teaching her to play chess. She's teaching me to dance! Worlds collide.

aaawwwwww. I'm getting all ferklempt! Really, I am so happy for ya'll. When I finally got it through my fat head that I needed a friend not "some enchanted evening", things got a LOT better for me. I know it's hard to believe now but friendship & common interests go a loooong way once the hots are over. (after 13 years I am still hot for my friend but you know what I mean) Aries Sweet, you got da bomb writing poetry! Keep having fun!

Lita, thinkin that Dave brought ya'll together makes me smile!!
