He comes to check in on me,
When he knows I'm worried,
And need some comfort & TLC.

We love each other from a distance,
- a great distance,
He knows I'm scared,
But keeps persisting.

I promise myself to never,
Lock eyes with him again,
And tell myself we'll just be friends,

I sneak off to the other,
Side of the street,
And lurk in shadows,
So we won't meet.

I tell myself I'm in control,
To forget about him,
It won't evolve.

But then I see or hear his name,
And my heart beats faster,
To my shame.

And late at night,
When I'm all alone,
I think about him & sometimes let go ...
