Fence

There is a fence all around me,
a thousand stories high.
It’s see-through, and it’s penetrable,
but only from my side.

My fingers poke through the gap,
and I prod for a reaction.
I feel it, and it’s nice..
but do I dare feel any longer…?

You are gentle and accepting
and all I want is more,
but I know how this will end for me,
so my only choice is to withdraw.

I don’t pass all the prerequisites,
and my wants are different to your needs.
Black and white questions have grey answers,
and all they do is cool our heat.

The fence stands high for our protection –
from love that could almost be.
I will wish for you all that your heart desires
and my true feelings I won’t let you see.
