Confessions of an Anxious Romantic

I enchanted you like I was casting a spell

I couldn’t help but notice the radiation of your excitement

But I used you like a recreational drug

Anything to numb the loneliness within me

I didn’t know this is how things would happen

That you would be so kind

I don’t know how to balance distance and intimacy

My barriers are up

Will you have the patience to watch them erode over time?

The push and pull of a melody I’ve never danced to

Will I move alone or with a partner?

My steps will be more precise solo

But there is a beautiful spontaneity that comes with a hand in mine
