She's got unicorns in her eyes.
I don't even know what that means, but her soul is ablaze with something I have never experienced before, and it is making me feel incredibly excited, yet it's terribly confusing at the same time. She's undoubtly the most wonderful, intelligent and beautiful creature I have stumbled across on my journey through this life, but even if she sees me even remotely likewise, she goes to university in another country. What is this cruel joke? It is of course, as always, of my own making. A great talent for repelling that which attracts me. Damn you, Raven! Why do you falter in the face of truth, what is the difference between her face, and that of a passerby? Are her lips redder, her eyes clearer, is her nose better shaped, her hair more golden? Possibly. Yet it did not matter before. Only of late have you started to avert her gaze, there where contact could have been made, finished conversations that, under regular circumstances, could have gone on till the break of dawn. Why do I pull away, when I want to get closer? I am too preoccupied with potential failure to even attempt, try, do anything. It is a fight that I cannot win, for it is not a fight.
I will lose.
But I must speak my mind, for none can simply read it. I will tell her how I feel.
EDIT: Think I'll just ask her out on a date and see how that goes. What the hell, Raven. Not everything is all or nothing all the time. Calm down.
EDIT2: Since nobody has posted anything else yet, I might as well just edit this in as well:
While I was gone from these fora (about a year) I discovered two (for me) very important things. The first one is that the solution to a problem doesn't really exist, there are only compromises. There is not really a correct way of dealing with things. There are options, and some of them suck less than the others, so you stick with that one.
The second one is that other people aren't just other people, they are individuals. They are a complete person, just as I am. Everybody is a "me" but a different one. That makes it a lot easier for me to understand their behavior.
Anybody alive here, anyway?
