Hold Me

I've known you for years
We're closer than most
But lately, you've pulled away from my touch
It's not like you
To move away from me when I go in for a hug

I'm not sure what happened
I don't know if it's something I did
But I just want to be in your arms again
With you, I feel safe 
But lately, you won't even sit near me
Can you please just hold me again

We've always shown affection 
With simple touches and short hugs
But two weeks ago you pulled away
And acted like you had been burned by my touch
It hurt to see you flinch like that
I just don't understand

I'm not sure what happened
I don't know if it's something I did
But I just want to be in your arms again
With you, I feel safe 
But lately, you won't even sit near me
Can you please just hold me again

I try to catch your eye, you glance away
But seconds after I look away, I feel your stare
I sit next to you, you shift away
Was it something someone said to make you act like this?
I never thought we could get like this

I'm not sure what happened
I don't know if it's something I did
But I just want to be in your arms again
With you, I feel safe 
But lately, you won't even sit near me
Can you please just hold me again

Just one touch, a brush of your hand
Hold me for a second
It's all I want
Why can't we just go back to the way things were

When you held me close and I felt safe
When we laid together on the couch for hours
You slept in my bed 
But now won't be within two feet of me
I don't understand
Why you can't hold me again
This is not based on real events. I'm really not sure what brought this on. I'm in a mood lol

    Wow! that was so deep and really beautifully written! I would love to hear this as an actual song, that was amazing!! And I really love the tracing it all back to starting two weeks ago, timelines are always really powerful! Omg hahah, "just in a mood"- so relatable! Tons of my poetry is romantic stuff and I've never even been in a relationship (thank you rom-coms and books) XD RE: Ok, so I finally realized that everyone responds to people by just going on one of their “works” (why does that feel so weird to say) but anyways aww, definitely. And of course, I’m always here! Have a great night/day as well! And thank you so much for your comment on my piece, I really enjoyed it! :)
