I’ve come to the awareness that I could fall in love again

that I could release the spirits of my past

not because they are irrelevant

but because they’ve taken up enough space

I thank all of them

I dream of twirling the person I call my bestfriend

She is so beautiful, I forget how awkward I feel dancing

I don’t think I’m that scared anymore

or I’ve realized that the absence of fear isn’t the meaning of conviction

So in my reveries of you and me, we are scared sometimes

But in my reveries of you and me, we remind ourselves that we are safe
