I tried not to think of you
but your name inevitably invaded
it entered uninvited
but I never rejected it
It’s not that I was avoiding you
I just didn’t feel it was the right time
we both needed the distance
I can sense that now that we’re away
An unspoken agreement
we both desired some space
but now my heart yearns
it began to beat your name
the more I try not to think of you
the more I envision your face.
