Thinking That If People Were Rain, I Was Drizzle And She Was Hurricane by John Greene

'I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around
her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep
together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and
she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly
boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and 
collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle
and she was hurricane.'
