Being with you is like, wait no it isn’t.

It isn’t like anything. It’s deeper than every black

hole that has and ever will exist. I’m infinitely sinking

while trying to reach towards your embrace. I’m fixated

on whether this is even happening, or if you’re another

Tyler Durden knockoff overthrowing my psyche.

  7. Your uncertainty and perhaps confusion as well come through perfectly. During my time between addresses I rented a room from a woman I couldn’t understand, but I urgently needed a place to sleep and do my freelance work. I thought of her (didn’t say it to her, of course) as Mary Heisenberg. That ended when the landlord ordered her to evict me or face the same. I never did figure her out. She spent most of the time I was there at live-in nursing jobs. And against those reading this may think, no, we didn’t.
