Because if I sit next to you,
And you start talking,
And you lean in, innocently,
To ensure I hear your words,
All I'll think about are your lips,
And when you look at me,
A polite gesture, articulating your interest in what I have to say,
I'll be at a loss for words,
I'll drown in the pool of your eyes,
And honey, I don't have a life jacket.
So when you see me sitting away from you,
Leaning away from you,
Don't take any offense,
Just know that I've fallen for you,
And I don't want to sink any further.
