the space between us

I feel tired
And exhausted
Like I’ve run miles
But for some reason
I’m still in this spot
Standing three feet away from you

I’d like to rest
And feel warmth
Like when I was held in your arms
But for some reason
I’m still in this spot
Standing three feet away from you

I’d like to smile
And feel happy
Like moments ago before you showed up
But for some reason
I’m still in this spot
Standing three feet away from you

And as much as I’d like to
I won’t run to you
I won’t rest in your embrace
I won’t smile that way again
I am walking away
I don’t want more reasons
To fill the space between us
