I feel it…
Running through my veins
Coursing through my blood
Filling my heart
…….And I can’t quite put a name to it.
It’s a new feeling
It confounds me
Confuses me, all at the same time
Is it okay to feel this way?
Should I feel guilty?
It makes me feel like everything that is good and pure and happy is filling me with this unmistakable
amount of ……..
It almost feels like I should lock it away
And that makes me feel even more guilty
I find myself looking over my shoulder if I smile too big
Paranoid that if someone sees, they may make it go away
I catch myself singing in the shower
…then I stop midsong, scared that if someone hears me
They might take my music away
What is this feeling?
It’s an inch more than happiness
An ounce more than blissful
A mile below perfect
And a teardrop beside content
Even now I’m too afraid to put it to words
But know that I feel it…
I know it’s there
I know it’s real
I can almost taste it
And nobody is going to take it away
