Not because I do not want to know you further, but because I am too afraid now to realize what these excited feelings in my stomach are.
Not because I do not want to know what’s in your heart, but because I am also unsure what’s inside mine. And I don’t want to be a fool again by taking one step ahead despite the clutter in my mind and heart.
Not because you are unworthy to be known, but because I am afraid for you to know me further. I am afraid of what you will see. I am afraid that you will walk away from what you’ll see.
I am taking one step away from you.
Because I don’t want to fall in love with you so easily. Even though you are that kind who can pierce easily to a woman’s heart. And I am the one who falls so easily.
Because I don’t want to ruin any friendship that we will create. Even though I am hoping deep in my soul that you are “my one.”
Because I don’t want to distract you from your dreams. Even though I am attracted to the person that you are because of the same dreams we have.
I will take one step away from you.
And I hope and pray, you will wait for me to step ahead, to be in tune with your footsteps.
And by that time, I hope and pray that I am ready to walk with you.
