I look at you and remember someone that I know
I grabbed on to something familiar and thought it would grow.
I fell fast
But it would not last
My heart revealed that it wasn’t for me
Your conversation and attention – was something that I could see
My mind agreed
The further I was to be away
Something deep urged me to stay
You revealed what I had missed
I was confused after the hug or possibly the kiss
Closer I came
Forbidden love and intense shame
Of course, I know how it will end
I wish the boundaries had remained friends.
Quiet by Nature
