It takes Two to Get to Know Each Other
Yes, it takes two to get to know each other.
It takes you, and I.
“You” always comes before “me”.
I am providing you with my story, so you get to know me.
I like taking you in slowly.
I like letting you precipitate mildly like Ag2So3(s).
I like what I know.
I have all the answers that I am looking for.
You give me them through your gaze.
I am always looking for more of you, though.
There is never a time where I am at equilibrium.
I am spontaneously excited and curious.
Where have you been?
What have you done?
What have you seen?
I think of what I will say when it gets silent.
When I do not have anything else to say.
I think, “Will she stay with me?”
I cannot provide that infinite source of energy.
I do have to take a break.
I do have to breathe.
But it’s nice breathing next to you.
I pursue a better friendship.
I’m listening to my heart.
Your eyes are guiding me.
I can be that energy, I can be that sun.
I can be that fire.
I am that fire.
But even the fire must be fueled.
It needs the air.
It needs that spark.
I think you are sparking me.
