Expectations

I can sense a lot
about you,
maybe even too much
to really understand why
but still
not enough to quit
trying.
 
where did you get the courage
to stand firmly on your feet
while the world crumbled
around you?
 
I admire that.
 
and your desirable beauty,
and your fearless immunity to compliments?
 
I admire these
 
because now you’re in my arms
while we cherish our freedom,
our stable enigma,
our unexpected
expectations.
 
and while I can sense
our future, maybe even
too much of it
it’s still not enough
to understand—
 
to understand what’s waiting
for us
in that timeless
secret web—
 
to understand
what’s hidden inside
our parallel
consciousness.
