Just Friends

Whenever we hold each other,
touch each other in a new way,
we smile.
As if we’re only sure of this moment
but not the next.
And though I suppose no one can truly be,
we know when we take one step forward,
we both still stay ready, set
in case we need to sprint tomorrow.

Sometimes we say sweet nothings
just to feel like better people
and create false, temporary security.
Neither of us can take too much tenderness,
too much commitment, compromise
too much care,
too much space, too much distance.
We take up indifference and
just this one moment.
