One Moment Can Change Everything
It's cold outside as you walk on your own down an empty road;
Wishing you were anywhere else than following an uncertain path leading to the unknown.
You suck in the frigid air
And it paralyzes you to the bone,
With such a harsh affliction
It unhinges your core;
Takes away every last hope you might have had before.
You close your eyes as your mind begins to scream,
Replaying every last unwanted memory
You can't seem to not bring.
You ask yourself those same questions daily
And all you need is the answer,
The reason why you can't seem to change things.
You feel someone's eyes upon you
And you begin to choke on your own fear;
You're afraid of what you'll see when you open your eyes,
Afraid of what they see that keeps them so intrigued,
Mostly you're afraid of what that person could become to mean.
But all it takes is one moment;
One moment for you to realize
Looking up at you from under her eyelashes
Then back down to her feet,
Is everything you need,
One moment for you to see
All of her insecurities displayed before you
As if you were watching a TV.
All it takes is one moment
For you to take the three steps separating you,
So you can gently touch her cheek
And say I've been waiting for the day we'd meet.
And it's in that moment,
You see me.
