Somena called late the other night. We only ever talk when it's late.
Me: Fair enough - what's your definition?
Her: (pause) Did you hear the lyrics to Cigarettes by the Wreckers? There's a line that goes "someday I won't have to prove 'Cause somebody will see all my worth." That's what I think. It's when somebody just thinks you're great; you're awesome.
Me: (thinking) If that's what it is then, I guess no, I haven't had it in a while. Besides, I don't...
Her: Stop. The right person will see. She'll think you're awesome. Even if you're not. You know how the line ends? It goes "until then I'll do just fine on my own." You always do just fine, you're always fine.
Me: (pause) It's too bad we're so alike...
Her: (laughing) We'd kill each other. Get some sleep. Nite, Logan.
Me: Nite, Somena.
I thinks that's a good definition although mine is a bit different but the same. I'll write it up some time.
What's your definition?
Music: I might like The quiet nights of this empty life
