March 9, 1999 or We've All Got Our Junk And My Junk Is You

Today is special day for T and me -- it's our NINTH anniversary. It doesn't even seem possible. We started this adventure nine years ago when I fell in love--pretty much instantly--during a college spring break trip. No one had ever understood me or connected with me like T did on that trip, and I had no idea someone could be so kind or accepting or make me feel so happy.

Not much has changed on that level in these last nine years, really. He still makes me smile when he enters a room, he still knows how to make me laugh, he still understands me when I have a bad day, and he still puts up with all my ridiculousness (which is a lot -- ask around). You couldn't ask for anything better, and I'm the luckiest fella in the world.

This post was harder to write than I expected, mainly because when you write feelings down, they start to sound a little saccharine. This is truth, though: I love T for everything he is and will love him forever. Happy anniversary, T.

So, bloggerfriends, you may not know that I dabble a little in poetry. I don't share it often, but I wrote something that I think describes my feelings for T pretty clearly. I hope you enjoy it:

Look at what's happened to me,
I can't believe it myself.
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world,
It should've been somebody else.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

It's like a light of a new day-,
It came from out of the blue.
Breaking me out of the spell I was in,
Making all of my wishes come true-.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

As T would say: Your poetry is RIDICULOUS! But it made me laugh. I loved it. Happy Anniversary you big mos.

ps. this is your ONE Happy Anniversary wish for the year. Hope you weren't expecting something more in July because as is common with your hot tranny self, you blew your wad early.

Oooh, got me a cavity! For real though, congratulations to you both. Y'all are just too lovely together, and both me and Bitter wish you many, many more years of happiness and hot man sex.

congratulations! you should see if you can sell the poetry as song lyrics ;)

you're so right about emotions sounding sappy when you articulate them, but go you for following through!
