away from me

textbook
the response I give
to you

because
the effort required
to make you understand
wearies me

I only let you so close
not because I’m afraid
but because you are desperate
to find a flaw
in my independence

I say things
that I don’t really mean
or that I only half mean
in order to stay you
away from my heart
away from my thoughts
away from me
