maybe i’m scared too. i’m scared to know that i do feel what you say.
i’m scared to know that inside me is a seed growing, unstoppable.
powerful enough to find you. that if i water the seed it will grow, that it is already growing, that you are my future, that if i look into your eyes i will be swallowed like pools. to drown.
but in a sweetness that i won’t want to forget.
i’m scared that inside i know my life will have to change, that i’m not who i’m meant to be now, but i will be with you.
i’m scared that the unknown knows more about us than i do.
so, i ask you now, don’t stop.

I’m scared that inside i know my life will have to change, that i’m not who i’m meant to be now, but I am who We meant to be…
Yes, Robin . I do know
It will happen
we are living parallel lives at the moment… yes. it will happen for you too. we will both change.
i look forward to seeing your next artwork, by the way. [and hearing about the wisteria guy, maybe you should paint “it” –what became of its life]
For anyone who has ever been in this moment, where the thing they loved was about to change their lives, this is an awesome poem.
Keep them coming!
There is a lot of fantastic imagery in this.
