how can I

how can I answer
how can I tell you
you keep yourself tight
so inside
so unapproachable
but your eyes
they keep taunting me
beseeching me
haunting me
how can I answer
how can I tell you
you're merely polite
almost cold to me
almost scolding me
but your touch
lingers on my arm
warming me
like a promise
but how can I answer
when you don't ask
how can I tell you
before you walk away
