She said I’m sleeping

just like that, from a hundred miles an hour to asleep in a nanosecond.
I wanted so badly to lie down next to her and sleep.
just sleep, in the most innocent sense of the phrase.
But i lacked courage.
i was awkward and she was gorgeous.
i was hopelessly boring.
she was endlessly fascinating.
so i walked back to my room and collapsed.
thinking if people were rain.
i was drizzle and she was a hurricane .
