Secretly in love with you, concealing it deep inside me.
I have never disclosed this, for fear of being disappointed or losing you.
Withholding it for so long, it keeps distressing me.
The closer we become, the more vulnerable I am.
You glance at me, then I divert my eyes away looking down.
You are just within my arm's reach, but it seems so far away.
The closer we are as friends, the less eligible it is for me to say I love you.
