The night is almost too warm, but he's shivering in my arms. And I realize,

Too Close

The night is almost too warm, but he's shivering in my arms.

And I realize,

And I realize, perhaps not for the first time,

And I realize, perhaps not for the first time, that I love him.

The thought terrifies me;

The thought terrifies me; it is all I ever wanted, but now I have gained something I won't be able to bear losing.

All those years I spent strengthening my heart,

All those years I spent strengthening my heart, becoming accustomed to being alone,

All those years I spent strengthening my heart, becoming accustomed to being alone, wash away easily at a smile from him.

What use were these flimsy defenses?

I've wasted so much time.

His heart echoes mine.

I almost tell him, but emotion blurs my sight and slurs my words,

I almost tell him, but emotion blurs my sight and slurs my words, so I just hold onto him tighter--

I almost tell him, but emotion blurs my sight and slurs my words, so I just hold onto him tighter-- tighter so that I may melt into him,

I almost tell him, but emotion blurs my sight and slurs my words, so I just hold onto him tighter-- tighter so that I may melt into him, tighter so that we may never drift apart.

And now I feel vulnerable,

And now I feel vulnerable, weak.

And now I am trembling too.
