We met at a dive bar over a cold beer, discussing
who we are and what we want to be.
My heart raced, tracing each word from her lips.
Our eyes met, exchanging our backstories.
Our interests intrigued the other;
our differences make for engaging tall tales.
The autumn evening ground to a halt,
but our life together went on forever.
