Day 138 – Grand

Without you I wouldn’t be brave for nothin’.
I would hole up like a turtle lady and
decide that everything is too hard.
My dreams would stay small and manageable,
bathed in a haze of self-content and baby steps.

But the things you want are too grand
for me to stay quiet and tidy with you,
and when you hold my hand I am
suddenly holding on for dear life-

that frightening life that you and I
are going to build.
