Distance and Connection

There’s security

in only allowing others to see you at your best

Made up


But pale, sickly

Lip bloodied

Feels too raw,

My image sullied.

What could be better than to remain

at a safe distance

a curated image


You might be anything exciting in their mind

But too far away from their arms

No real connection can warm.

So when I was crying on the balcony and you asked

“Why won’t you let me hold you?”

The honesty and boldness



But the response too complex to be uttered.
