I thought the relief would come when you kissed me.
But it came to me after, when you held my hand.
You know that moment?
The one where your lips are only an inch apart
Before anybody leans or tilts their gaze
there is a moment of stillness.
And there’s a pull
A force a drive or something
Something telling you to close the gap.
An unspoken tangible unimaginable something.
A kind of closeness that can only be shared at a distance
Between the two of you there is a pure and absolute essence of desire.
Well we’ve been here for a while now.
I feel it even when we are miles apart
There is something
Begging both of us to stay
