Distance

Perhaps you should stay where you are,
and simply admire me from afar.
Perhaps the distance is best for me
’cause then you won’t see me as faulty.

Perhaps I should keep all my guards up,
and keep the bridge from the water’s top.
‘Twould be far safer, for both of us
For then at least I’d still have your trust.

I have just lost too much already
by letting them see me too closely.
So perhaps you should not cross the line–
or shouldn’t have, ’cause you did when I thought it fine.
