And I asked you about your exes
Not out of jealousy
Because they knew you in a time I didn’t.
They existed when I hardly did
You said, “I guess that is a good reason to ask.”
And took a swig of whiskey.
I never liked the stuff.
But just the idea of having to talk about you life
And your exes
Before me stressed you out that much
And I thought,
“I really am lucky”
That you really cant answer my questions about your sex with them
Or how you broke up with them
And yet I kept asking
And you kept drinking
And you couldn’t remember
And I was both content and displeased with this fact
And you told me things
Things we hadn’t talked about in what felt like years
And our relationship felt all that much more real.
But at the bottom of the line
At the bottom of your bottle
I think what makes it worse is
Even though you love me
And plan to marry me
I was not what you expected.
I was human.
Lucky for you,
Or maybe more so unfortunately
We can share the disappointment in that fact.
This is a cute movie. The idea of a women coming alive from your writing is a fun concept. I’m really enjoying Paul Dano and his recent stint of playing writers. Nice little date movie, if I had a date to go on.
