Come Now. {Poem}

Come now.

I’ve been waiting a long time.

And okay, I know I’m not fully ready,

But as they say, I’m as ready as I’ll ever be.

Because the rest of the readiness

Can only come through being with you.

I’ve come as far as I can on my own,

I need you by my side to go the rest of the way.

I’ve done the navel gazing,

Self-exploration and reflection.

Enough now—

Only by being with you

Can I complete the journey.

I need to park the analysis now

And go back to making mistakes

That I can learn from.

I’m willing to feel the fear

Of the big reveal

And do it anyway.

But you aren’t here

For me to expose myself to.

You are the missing piece,

So come.
