A guy I like, he's complicated. He has feelings for me, or so he says, yet whenever I try to get close to him, he runs. I get emotional because I really want him around, and just as I'm about to give up on him, he's right there saying the perfect things, long enough for me to try to get close again.

Uncaged. Untamed. And yet you stay.

Without a sound, your beauty speaks

You're not a pet. You're not my possession.

And yet you stay.

In darkness you blend, eyes illuminated.

From a distance we speak. You hate the distance closed.

Shutting your eyes when I take a step.

And yet you stay.

When all is revealed by sunlight

And the warmth surrounds you,

My sunlight lights your path into another's night.

As my sunlight fades

And the silence returns.

I feel your darkness around me, eyes illuminated.

You're not a pet. You're not my possession.

And yet you've stayed.
