I Avoid You. {Poem}

I avoid you

You rub up against the places I feel inadequate

This is why I avoid you

When what I really want

Is to run up and jump into your arms

Give you a big hug

And declare my love

 

Not romantic love

Just love

Just love and admiration

 

But fear embraces me

Turns me cold

Arms crossed

A slight how’s it going

Rolling off my tongue

Inadequately expressing

My joy in seeing you
