You know that feeling?
The one where butterflies turn into fluttering wings in your stomach?
When it’s hard to breathe?
Your head spins and you can’t wipe the smile from your face?
The one where you know, this is abnormal…
This is not like all the other times your insides skipped a little.
No, this is different.
This is, one minute your skin feels raw to the touch, your so emotionally bare. The next your insides take a bungee jump off the Empire State. The urge to vomit is on demand, in an instant. This is mind numbing.
It fills you, the tiny little crevasse. It’s a stream that has miraculously sprung up in the desert, the dry earth soaking in each drop of moisture. It finds new places to hide that didn’t exist before.
It is love.
It is terrifying.
It can so easily turn to poison in your veins…the risk is there.
But it also has the potential to sprout sees of hope that eventually turn into something beautiful. It has the ability to bring life where there was none. To make a lush garden where a desert once was.
It is an oasis.
Or is it just a mirage?
Now the eternal question…is it worth the risk?
