please let me continue

don’t get me wrong
please don’t
but your energy scares me…
in a way that finding something lost does, long forgotten
it wants me to see
that maybe
somehow
you are the person i have been searching for
although a mirror to see myself
in the same moment…

but isn’t it true
that we all search for the person
who can allow us
to get closer to ourselves?

you seem anxious about the words
you use
as if they make a difference
as if you don’t know that it’s the energy
behind them
that decides.

i observe you silently
and i know you
please let me continue

  1. I’ll take beautiful, too. And in response to the question
    “but isn’t it true
    that we all search for the person
    who can allow us
    to get closer to ourselves?” – my answer is yes. It’s true for me.

    I love this!
