Nice Guy Chronicles X

Each love interest
Has left an impression on me
Each one has challenged  
My ideals in some form
Yet such is the nature of experience  
 
I don't know whether it was the result of being in a big city  
Or whether life felt extra ironic towards me
But I got to a point in which I had no crushes
I had some kind of encounter  
With each of them
 
Now we all know crushes don't always pan out
But they're fun to have as a reminder  
That some part of you finds others attractive  
 
My sense of attraction seemed to go away
Maybe it was the workaholic taking over
Or maybe I had just had enough
Who knows
 
However I am also happy with my life
I'm happy with finally seeing a semblance of progress  
So maybe it's tunnel vision
 
I've been single for so long  
I probably need a crash course in dating
 
However as they say life has its seasons
A fruit tree goes through winter  
And loses its leaves
It feels like forever  
 
Then out of the blue
One cherry blossom  
 
Or at least that's how I felt
When I saw someone
Who made me feel a certain way
This feeling had grown foreign to me
Yet It was there
 
Nothing crazy, just a subtle noticing of someone else
 
Anything could happen going forward  
Pain and Heartbreak could come again
Or things could work out this time
The only way to know
 
Is by taking the plunge
 
Who knows where all our life experiences go
Yet for now, all we can do is live
 
The Chronicles are never ending
