When you meet someone new now

Lean on Me by Sascalia

When you meet someone new now
You overshare, overbear, over do
You revisit your best events and top-score
You use the word “I” more 
You listen to the word “I” more
And you still want.. more

When you meet someone new now 
You know what you’re signing up for 
You tell them when you learned to drive your car
You know whom to offer that last pizza slice 
You define versa and vice

When you meet someone new now 
You speak faster
Sometimes leaving sentences incomplete
Segues to another topic, or even disconnected musings 
So much to cover
And uncover

When you meet someone new now
You’re a new you
You’re simple, untouched, uninhibited 
You can be whatever you want 
But still most likely you choose to be you.
