oceans away

i always wanted to be closer to you
but there were oceans
and nothing
between us
there were firecrackers and forests
and there was absolute zero
between us
there was nothing but the
sound of your breath and the tremor of mine
and i was too nervous
too scared of taking a step
and drowning in those oceans
or taking a moment
and tumbling in the blaze
or easing a whisper
and being swallowed whole
i never took that chance
never got any closer, any sooner
you were always just those
oceans away
