Daily Prompt: Hesitate

via Daily Prompt: Hesitate

I see you
standing in the rain
waiting for me to arrive.
Yet as I smile
and take a step
towards what is familiar
I hesitate.
Is this truly what I want?
To spend the rest of my life
safe,
or do I want more?
Is this living?
My smile wains
my foot turns
and I walk away from what is known
into uncertainty.
