bittersweet?

Every glance from you feels inevitably
painful
now, bittersweet?

every message anticipated, because
it all matters more. You matter

the most.
I'm never not missing you,
never not craving your touch, just a little.
your worry, your words.

I want to say:
I love you

more than I've ever wanted to say
anything.

but it would be selfish, perhaps,
immature.

keeping this from you feels wrong and it
fosters a fear,

unfamiliar.

I love you:
i want to.
