Uncertainty, certainly, guides my mind. 

A doubt that fills my idle thoughts, 

wondering if I'm too much, sometimes, to handle. 


I want to be able to read your thoughts, and theirs,  

to know if I'm pushing boundaries I should not. 

I want, I want, I want 

I want to be able to know things. 

Things about you, about them, about everyone 

because a piece of me falls in love with everyone. 


Lying awake at night, curled into your side, 

I think about things that could be. 

Tiny, doubting what-ifs cloud my mind 

hindering me from sleep.  

And when I dream, 

I dream about other people. 

Small happenings, small intermingling occasions 

that make me wonder  


Am I pushing past your boundaries?
