I Am No One to Need or Want Anything
My life was boring, not talking to my friends,
spending my life at work and the gym.
I’ve always done that when I wanted to be alone,
dissolving myself into anything else.
It’s what I am good at. Working followed all of it.
Why not spend the time doing something productive.
It went into a day at work that I spent the whole night before dreading,
but as always, I made it on time and ready to go.
It was June and felt like summer was almost over,
it was hot and the pressure of school was on the horizon.
I didn’t know what to focus on.
Work. School. Friends. Repeat.
I chose work, as I worked two jobs almost every day.
Luckily, he came back for his first shift.
He stood in the corner and didn’t say a word.
Minded his business and didn’t care to make friends.
Good for him is that I have a big mouth and I said hello.
It was instant. He was attractive, kind, and reserved.
