REMAIN

I need you to remain what you are
An idea unresolved
A feather floating just beyond my grasp
A curious riddle I’m yet to solve

My encounter with you has been quite beautiful
But sometimes beauty is better admired from afar
Once we touch the glass it’ll surely shatter
And this concept of you I’d rather not mar

There’s just too much tragedy in this world
There’s too much disappointment
Possibility is usually better than reality
So instead I indulge in my eager mind’s figments

I’m afraid I’ll end up wanting more
Than what you’ll be able to give
And this fear of getting hurt somehow
Has held me quite it’s captive

As I told you once before
The decay is surely inevitable
Beautiful things begin to wither
It’s always a losing battle

I’m sorry if I sound disillusioned
I’m sorry if I’m not making sense
I told you from the start I’m a little neurotic
And this time it’s at our expense

I’m not saying we can’t be friends
I still want to hear your thoughts
I just need to keep some distance between us
A safeguard of sorts I have sought

Maybe we can grab coffee someday
Maybe we’ll have our time
But now all I can really say to you
I’ve said to you in rhyme

So please take care of yourself my love
And keep your hungry spirit alive
Because in this world that dims the magic
Sadly not much of it survives
