Unturned



Dear, as I've come to know you, 
I'm trying to respect you
and to keep my distance.
But I can't get you out of my head. 
I don't even know if I'm 
supposed to be trying. 
I wasn't sure if we were severing ties
or just taking time.
I know you said we were taking time
but my anxiety told me you were just being nice. 
My anxiety convinced me that what you said 
was just your way of ending it. 
The gentleman that you are 
didn't want to make me sad or hurt. 
I know that's my own personal hang up, 
but it would help to know where we stand. 
I miss our exchanges, the banter we had. 
You were becoming a friend. 
I don't know if you've been struggling
With reaching out to me. 
It would be nice to think it goes both ways, 
But just the same, 
I don't want to be stubborn and wait in silence, 
I want to be friends. 
I'm really just writing to let you know that
I'm never going to lose interest.
