Poem: Those Words

Those Words

Don’t push, but don’t pull away
Don’t love me any more
than you did yesterday
before I said those words
to you.

Don’t let go, but don’t hold on too tight.
Don’t laugh with me any more
than you did last night
before I said those words
to you

Don’t keep secrets, but don’t share yearning
Don’t tell me any more
than you did this morning
before I said those words
to you.

I opened my mouth
You opened your eyes
There we stood with honor between us.

Don’t push, don’t let go, don’t keep secrets
Don’t pull away, don’t laugh, don’t share

Do’s and don’t’s surround us.
All because I said those words
to you.
