Thoughts Of A Cautious Heart

I’m scared you’d make me happy
that you’d make me smile at the thought.
That when I’m around you, you’d make me laugh 
so hard that I’d forget all that’s wrong with the world.
That maybe, just maybe you love to see me joyful 
you love to see me carefree

That maybe you want to run alongside me
Run through meadows and under the full moon
And take my hand because it’s cold and yours is warm
That maybe my monumental expectations intrigues you
And you are up for the challenge

I’m scared that I’d get addicted to your persona 
That it’s as ambitious, playful and sincere as the day is young.
That maybe my path and yours have overlapped in this moment
And that maybe the entire universe foresaw and 
conspired for our energies to collide

That somehow you’d begin my sentences
And educate me in esoteric ways
That perhaps it’s okay for the sky and the earth 
to kiss one another
and have gratitude fill each night, each day

That in this matrix, you look at me
You read me, you see me
You know my soul
You know my truth

And maybe
Just maybe

It melts

    A cautious optimism. Very well written. Splendid closing lines "And maybe/ Just maybe/ It melts/ You" Shakeela love.
