Keeping you out of the most intimate parts of his life
Like what he eats
Where he goes when he needs to shop
What color shoes he is currently wearing
How he truly feels about you.
The rules were laid out long ago
What you could ask from him
And what you couldn’t,
Not by his words
But by his deeds.
He inches away
Keeping you miles and miles apart
Even if you were in the same city
But he would never do that
Because his ‘game’ requires him
To have at least one ocean separating you two,
So when you ask him for help
Or need him to touch you
He can say
“Gosh, I’m so far away.”
Is his lie
The one he is convinced
Is the truth.
Love doesn’t lie
It doesn’t keep people apart from one another
It forces us to see the truth
It forces us to forgive those
Who have hurt us.
Do you believe such a powerful emotion
Would truly keep a man from you
That really wanted you?
