perfectly ensconced between two conflicting emotions i have my back against this green wall.  and this dank room leaves me gasping. i want to wander about. but you drew me to this wall.  its textured roughness  nudge at my scalp. i look sideways and from the corner of my eye i catch a glimpse of your hand working away deftly, trying to bring me into life. i am only an image in your head now. soon i will manifest. wonder, if i will match up to your imagination then?
