april 2015 pad challenge day 25: afar

i want to
reassure you

to tell you
that i remember

that i wish
i could be there

even for a little while

but i'm afraid my words
will only make things

i don't want to open
healed wounds

i don't want to hurt
the very heart
of you

and i have to protect me

so i watch
from afar
and i love
from afar

and i pray for your protection
each night

but i wake in
the days
and i walk through
my haze

bottling up what feelings
i feel

what's real is always
down the street
