I’ve wanted to stay behind a barrier,
a protective screen,
at a cautious distance!
I’ve needed the space
I’ve needed the safety glass to be less vulnerable
but right now
I think it might not be kind to stay back here
I still know I’m on my own
I’ve kept that reality in mind
but there’s no reason to be frozen
I don’t really know what to say,
but I don’t want to be hurtful by
being away today
Love is still the best state to live in.
