For all those reasons you know well…
          I keep you at arms length now

By my choice, never closer now than just a voice on the phone …..

It’s where I keep you now.

But you never stray – or at least not very far….

You call…

You call…

My love
          My torment…

You call…
You love me…

But for those reasons you know well, I fear you

So I remain here
          And keep you there …….. 

You are my soulmate…..

At times
          it’s almost unbearable….

Why can’t I finally just say goodby?
