There are some people you can love only from a certain distance.
May they come too close, you’ll ruin everything trying to hide your demons. The fear of being hated for showing too much will consume your love.
May they go too far, you’ll ruin everything trying to explore their souls. The fear of knowing too little will exhaust your love.
It’s like a bonfire. Get too close – burn yourself. Get too far – no heat remains.
Staying with these people takes too much, sucks the life out of you. Letting go doesn’t come in easy either, the distance echoes with memories.
You choose to stay? Or live?
