Tease

I mind my own business
You come into my world
Tease me with your words
Make me feel alive

I take a step towards you
You take a step away from me
I run towards you in desperation
You run away from me

Exhausted, I stop
Just a step away, you stop
I look at you with questions
You give me a check of reality

I realise
I weep, filled with sorrow
I make amends to my broken heart
I recover in my own time

I come out with new hope
I see the light of the day
I mind my own business
You come into my word, again
