"I fall in love regularly,
with each person whom
passes me in the streets,
or who sits beside me on the bus.
Not in the romantic way;
No, we hardly even speak a word to each other.
But I sit, quietly observing
all of their body language and
all of their expressions.
Their smiles, and gestures;
the way they lift their coffee,
or smile as they read that new text message,
or count the change in their hands.
I watch vigilantly, tracking the
manners and movements,
appreciating all that these
I spend some time thinking about
their families and lives,
and the life they lead.
I consider what they do for work,
and what they went to school for.
When they woke up that morning,
and when they did their hair.
I study the details of
these people, that they may
otherwise go unnoticed.
Researching each of them,
noting our similarities, and
rejoicing in the beauty of
I simply fall in love."
