Not today

Swim far out but don’t drift away.
Hold my finger but don’t lead the way.
Kick the road but don’t fully release.
Cherish my laughter but only a piece.
Sit by me but don’t get too close.
Take my least and make it the most.
Be big in presence but don’t look my way.
I know that I’ll love you.. just not today.

Would you like a side of epic with that fail?

This is short and sweet. I hope you keep writing things like this. You are a wonderful writer.
