Shhhh

Let me whisper something into your ear.

I'm scared.

I'm terrified of what I may never know.

but how do I know the pain of losing you if I have never known you.

That deafening silence?  it's me screaming,

and all the wishing in the world, all the finger crossing, all the sitting on the edge of the bath tub

all the humming, the smiling, the pretending...none of it drowns it out.

False hope, hope's hope, blind faith, finding faith - none seem to give me comfort today.

I want to risk the threat of losing you because I know that loving you even for a glimpse, would make it infinitely worth it.

But first I have to know you.
