This was sent to me by someone who wanted to share it anonymously. Having been a 20 something once in my life, I was happy to oblige.
Did I imagine the spark when our eyes locked the first time? I felt like I had fallen into a clear blue ocean. You were suspicious of me from the beginning, rightfully and not rightfully so. I was a part of a bigger plan originally until I met you. I found myself drawn to you. My whole day was made in those early morning hours quietly moving around one another. Mumbled morning greetings and on to work in a comfortable silence after a promise of honest communication as the first line of dealing with ill feelings. After a while the days continued to be brightened by random conversations over lunch time even when I exuded the 'fuck off' vibe to everyone else... You poked and prodded until we were chuckling. How could I ever think of sticking to the plan? I grew to hate the plan. I protected our world instead always insisting there was nothing to report. I found out so much about you over breakfast, lunch, and after hours. I could feel your moods from early on. I warned others when it was time to go easy. I fretted over you even as you brushed me off. I am not sure why I have always felt protective over you but I do. I can't shake you and I don't want to.
I think Miss J is an empath. What a sweet and powerful sentiment. Thank you for sharing it with us.

There's something so phenomenal about the imagery in this song. It's powerful and sad and beautiful all at once. And if I get it stuck in my head, I will cry at some point. But I still love it. Using the colors and the other imagery to perfectly, so perfectly, describe an ill-fated relationship is brilliance. Just brilliance.
