TRYING NOT TO FALL

TRYING NOT TO FALL

if you see me leave early

or hesitate to make eye contact

if i seem reticent to express too much affection

that’s just me trying not to fall in love again


if i appear caught up in my head

stuck between worlds and moments

afraid of my deepest self and its desires

that’s just me trying not to fall in love again


if i make my boundaries more rigid

less porous or open and fluid

if i express love like i would to a cousin or brother

that’s me trying to make sure i don’t fall in love again
