I was a man of substance, once -

I held the secrets of the world in my mind

hidden away from prying eyes. 

Privy to all the world had to offer,

I thought myself gifted.

 

I had experienced everything under the stars,

that much was true.

I had foughten off every odd

to be standing where I stood -

comfortably beneath those same stars that gave me wisdom

and guided me through the absence of light.

 

The day I became aware of your existence

was the day that all things known to me

became irrelevant.

I reached past my stars to touch you

to ensure you were real, 

and that was the moment I had touched the unknown,

where I learned there was a different world

just so long as I was willing to reach away from my comfort zone

and the things that kept me safe.

 

You unleashed a world upon me,

ready to be explored

and for a brief moment,

time stood still

and for the first time in my life,

I became scared.

I could battle heights,

arachnids, and even the supernatural

each time able to claim victory,

but it was you

who instilled a fear into my bones. 

 

My world became brand new.

Where I saw ends before, I now see beginnings

and where I once saw failure and doubt,

I now see possibility and hope,

and though I am scared, it is your smile

and your ever-so-intriguing mind

that pushes me past my fear of the unknown.

 

I have not a clue what the future holds

and for someone who hates change, 

I am more than happy to know that instead of sitting beneath the stars

alone and safe, 

I can now float above them,

into the deepest reaches of space, 

exploring the world;

exploring you.
