Closeness that makes me grow breathless,
Distances that pave longings, restless,
Down there somewhere lies a fortress,
Where he reigns the prince, I am his princess.
Skyrocketing, a heartbeat, a breath frenzied,
A mind in equilibrium, off anxiety freed,
He turns tides when he's not to be seen,
Madly I surveil with peace wiped clean.
When eyes meet, a shower of flowers unseen,
I rush to his side to know where has he been,
Warring an impulse to wrap him in my arms,
To lull my heart and dismiss all of its qualms.
In solitude I confess to feelings foreign,
That could be christened love yet aren't benign,
Admit to my fear of getting rebuffed,
In a prison in paradise, left behind to scoff.
