Within Close Proximity

By
I'm so close, and yet so far.
Close enough to touch, but still I don't.
I just stop myself, but then it starts.
All of these feelings overwhelm my heart, but still I won't.
I just cannot help myself from falling for you time after time,
Everyday I deal with a constant battle between my heart and my mind.
But I'm afraid of saying a word for the fear of you walking away,
So another day passes by with you not being the risk I am willing to take.
I hide away how much you mean to me,
When I am near you it's so hard to breathe.
It's too much to take,
But I am not willing to cross that line blindly.
I do not want to ruin what we have on a lingering chance,
That you could see me differently.
I would rather keep the dream of you and me unheard,
And simply remain your secret admirer.

Your poem is so real. There are so many people out there who have a constant, deep emotion for someone that they know and they either never speak on it or wait too long to do it. You also did a great job of illustrating the "torn" feeling that the subject of your poem was feeling.
