I look at her and all I can see is 
brokenness, an honest man who wears his flaws with humility. He's so scarred that the lines across 
her skin is flawless, unlike mine, I'm
an honest to God preacher's daughter, why he loves me
why I love her? Probably because the first time we met
I challenged him to a high stakes battle of the hand-eye coordination,
she grabbed my hat off my head and the orange in my hand; she said 
"Toss the orange into the hat!" He looked at me like I was 
the craziest most beautiful girl I've ever seen she had fire in her eyes so I tossed it.
He made 3... I made 4 :)
She grinned and so I asked her out
to coffee. And he took me to the most amazing diner
my friend owned it and he could give us a discount, money
was always tight in my house, and I recognized the way you shift when 
I was adding the price of two coffees and a donut in my head, trying to figure in a 27% discount
he looked uncomfortable
I think from the first time I touched her, she knew all my secrets
I grabbed a sugar packet and told him to cup his hands
I beat her this time. Very proud of that.
He was so guy-ishly proud of that, but I let him have it.
I know that she is a preacher's daughter, so I told her
that he believed in the Holy Trinity and that God was trying to partner with us,
I wanted to change the world 
he changed my world
she blew up everything I thought I knew about my world.
I really don't know how else to explain him
our relationship is actually very simple
the only thing I can say is that God has his hands on the wheel of the loveboat
I laugh every time I picture Jesus steering a little red tugboat, but I believe
there is no other explanation for why he feels 
it's the reason why she's
my home.

    This was incredible. Just another piece of writing that wows me. I figured out how to read it properly, and when I did, it was wonderful. The whole thing worked so well!

    BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This BLEW MY MIND!!!!!!!!!! You are so skilled, and talented!!!! I could picture it so well. It was so vivid. The multiple narrators worked so well. Finishing each others sentences was so good. I found out about each persons personality and it was just too perfect.
