At Arms Distance


It’s not that I mean to love you from afar,

It’s just I seem to get broken when I leave my heart ajar

I don’t really mean to stay so far away

And I really hate that I hold in all I have to say

I can’t help but stay two steps behind

Because when I catch up, I fear what you may find

I don’t mean to explode with meaningless chatter,

But I’m too apprehensive to face saying things that really matter.

It’s not like you’ll even hear this since it’s more than I can bare

To even let you glimpse, at just how much I care.
