Sometimes I almost slip; I always catch myself wanting (or is it needing) to say “I love you.” When I realize this a smiles comes on my face, but I know I can’t say it; not right now at least. You’re such a great distance away though it feels as though your heart is right next to mine. I don’t want to scare you away when you aren’t even here to begin with. Those words, though, they want to slip from my lips and I know it would feel so natural to say them to you. This feeling that I hold for you frightens me because I have never felt it before and the thought of losing you is a horrid one at that. Perhaps I will tell you what I feel some day and perhaps you will tell me the same, but for now, I’ll just keep it to myself, just as I want to keep you.
