i was drizzle and she was a hurrican

I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fu#k, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.

《Ήθελα τόσο πολύ να ξαπλωσω διπλα της στον καναπε,να τυλιξω τα μπρατσα μου γύρω της και να κοιμηθώ. Όχι να πηδηχτουμε όπως σ'εκεινες τις ταινίες. Ούτε καν να κάνουμε σεξ. Απλά να κοιμηθούμε μαζί, με την πλέον αθώα έννοια της φράσης. Όμως μου έλειπε το απαραίτητο θάρρος, εκείνη είχε ήδη αγόρι,εγώ ήμουν άχαρος και εκείνη υπέροχη, εγώ ήμουν αφόρητα βαρετός και εκεινη αστείρευτα συναρπαστική. Επέστρεψα λοιπον στο δωμάτιο μου και σωριαστηκα στο κάτω κρεβάτι και σκεφτόμουνα πως έτσι και οι άνθρωποι ήταν βροχή,εγώ ήμουν ψιλοβροχο και εκείνη τυφώνας.》
