I can feel you tiptoe around me.
I know your footsteps are tentative and soft.
You think you know what I need.
And perhaps you’re right.
Perhaps I feel braver than I should.
Stomp a little louder, my friend.
Make the ground shake.
Crush my little toe.
I’m done with the past.
I don’t know what the future holds.
So I’m living in the present.
Moment to moment.
Right here in the now.
Why don’t you join me?
Forget what I need.
Give me what I want.
