Closer To You

Lucía Linaje-Ferrel


I know you didn’t mean to upset me

When you said we had little in common

It’s true

Which thread connects us is a mystery

That both fascinates and scares me

What do you see when you look at me?

Lovingly I hold your gaze

But I can seldom decipher it

Your tone is still guarded and my voice still sounds fake

I wouldn't mind silence

If it didn't make me feel so small

I fear the day our paths stop crossing

The day the forest grows so thick

That we won’t find our way back to each other

I catch your hand as it comes down

In the hopes that you'll pull me closer

To your side of the world

How can I tell you I'll always be here

(We don't even know where we are)
