I see you.
My eyes are boring into yours
But I can never decipher what you think
Can never guess why you shrink
Each time I get closer
Each time I try to care.

I feel you.
My body so attuned to yours
But I fear I'm on the brink
Of losing that beautiful bond, that link
That binds us together
As close as ever.

I am near you.
My breath mixing with yours
But then you're gone in the blink-
Of an eye, leaving me to sink
Deeper into despair
Deeper into my worst fear.
