Lightness and dark
Down versus up
Washes over the beaches of anxiety
Life opens up when you do
Shit, well I guess it’s not opening up
Vulnerability just isn’t my thing
Experiencing openness and real-ness
Being too close
It’s too dangerous
Letting myself feel…
It’s easier being detached
Not missing, caring, and wishing
If more isn’t an option
Then hurt isn’t an option
Tears will never flow
Because heartstrings are never ever tugged
Which is great
Its like being afraid of my own shadow
I’m not sure if I’m ready to
Deal with the repercussions of caring
I don’t want to leap out in front
Can I just decline my heart?
Negate my feelings for you?
Even though every single annoying conversation and every touch makes every nerve ending scream out “I like you”
All while my brain is begging/pleading my heart to play pretend
So have you got the guts?
Been wondering if your hearts’ still open, and if so I wanna know what time it shuts.
Simmer down and pucker up
I’m sorry to interrupt it’s just I’m constantly on the cusp of trying to Kiss you
