Naturally, Tejas asked me why was I wasting my time.
The answer I gave him:
Don’t underestimate the power of appearance.
He’s tall, like a tree tall.
And I can’t help but imagining myself climbing him like Jack climbed the beanstalk.
Only to slide down that huge tree trunk.
Did I really say that?
Don’t think I don’t question my own sanity.
Why spend time with someone so clearly in need of a rebuild?
Well, the answer is simple.
No, I’m kidding.
Really, it’s that everyone is deserving of love.
I might not latch my wagon to him, but I’ll certainly go toe-to-toe in a race with him.
Never underestimate the power of appearance.
