She feels what I know, but reservation and preservation forbids us. It is my role to protect and I will with everything in me, yet the shared curiosity is expected insomuch to better understand why we both remain interested in the potential.
I once believed life is complicated, yet I know now that we all are at our places today because of the choices we made along the way albeit covert or overt decisions. Hence, there is a mutual agreement to take careful, slow and sensitive steps to finding out ‘what could be’ because there are so many variables involved.
Besides, our decisions – indifferent as they may be – were applicable and relative at the time. If only, if only … we can move forward because yesteryear consumes us so.
Perhaps one day we can meet at that place called Courage! Ahem. Until then, I remain Self–Reserved & Curious.
