hey, you

I hope you read this so you know how I’m feeling, since my words tend to get crumpled like tossed paper whenever I get close to you…

My feelings of adoring you – in a very specific way, haven’t changed or faded, but I want some space right now, just like you do…

Every time we have one of those amazing nights where we laugh and are tangled in each other like well-worn lovers, I feel an urge to pull away. It’s like our connection is tidal and slightly volatile in the need for closeness and space… and instead of being swept to sea or dulled like the waters in a lagoon, I want to calmly pull back, catch my breath, and slowly reach back for you…

and allow this to happen again and again until the connection is either solidified or dissolved
