“Hi I’m Gisselle! What’s your name?”
“I think you’re really pretty can I have your number?”
The first interaction with the girl of my dreams.
You saw me through the sea of rainbow flags,
And approached me.
I was so terrified,
And yet so excited.
What would I tell my mom?
An exchange of phone numbers
Led to many nights of conversations about our wildest dreams,
And our deepest aspirations.
What would I tell my friends?
You gave me the courage,
You offered me the support,
You inspired me.
My dear, you live your life so free of other’s opinions.
What would I tell my boyfriend?
I like girls.
You helped me realize that.
And for that, I am forever grateful.
