1 in 7 Billion

I don’t know you, have no idea where you are, whether you’re living or dead, and you know just as little about me. But the thing is, I love you and I know you’re somewhere.
We’re made for one another so in the event that we finally meet, we’ll know.
The difficult part is trying not to sound rigid when I say this: one thing I know is that you’re female. You always are.
I’m female on the outside too at the moment, but I know you’ll look beyond my skin and see the man inside. And you’ll appreciate the woman in me too whilst I rest in the arms of your masculinity. Together, we’re no spectrum but a universe, a complement without the necessity of being complete.
Whatever we’ve both done in the past that has put us here were we are now, I don’t think it will keep us apart. If we don’t find one another in this life, we’ll try again in the next.
I’ll never give up because I have so much to give to you, and I need you more than anything.
I hope that we’ll cross paths in the next few decades (sooner rather than later) but until then, all you need to know is that I’m here and ready to settle and learn. I’m sorry in advance for how tough it’ll be, but i know you’ll understand and we’ll love each other all the more for it.
“Evangeline, hold me once more / and then never look back
Evangeline, kiss me like that / how will I ever forget?”
