For years
I’ve kept my eyes
from catching yours
because
I knew it might take me beyond
the safe distance
of your voice.

Every day
I’ve withered
from the side
in your arms
when you held me
tighter than I could respond
smiling politely
in the distance
when you tried to catch
my glance
knowing
that I’d have to face you
tomorrow.

But today
the day
i know i’ll never see you again
except on formal occasion
with curious observers
to decide
I turned your glance
into a gaze
and sank into your arms
with mutual embrace
knowing the rush
of everything I’d kept inside
was enough
to convince you
I was right
to stay away.
