i have said before that i love people hard.
and i do.
i dive in.
no, not dive, that is too graceful.
more like a cannon ball.
i've recently discovered that it goes beyond love.
when i am involved in some one's life,
i am fully immersed.
i don't hang around the edges.
i hate the edges.
probably why i don't have too many friends.
and i think, once again, that i tend to get hurt
because i expect everyone to live in the middle of things.
where it is messy, and jumbled up.
where the lines blur a bit, where truth lives.
not on the edges.
where things and relationships can always be neat and tidy.
maybe i just need to start asking people...
excuse me please, before we get into this thing called friendship,
can you tell me..
are you an edge walker?
