simplicity in complexity.

a rush of thoughts

to the brain.

overwhelming,

enlightening,

and overall, exciting.

the interest never went away,

overshadowed by something bigger.

hiding it away

to cover the hurt.

pushed to the side.

ignored,

but never gone.

all these years

and it's still there.

holding on,

but hiding away

in fear of more rejection.

I can't believe that

this is real.

I'm scared to let it

fall back into place.

maybe it was meant to wait,

until now.
