You might write me nightmares

watch me create my own world out of silence,
granted only half a minute of courage daily.
to love. to need. to hurt.
to forgive. to let go. to repeat.
watch me come back to you.
watch me respond to estrangement 
with proximity.
to mean my promises.
watch me dance around your fire.
it frightens me
you're suddenly so important.
it frightens me
you've already changed me.
it frightens me
you might write me nightmares.
