I wish you could admit
that love is there,
but you are afraid.

I wish we both could admit
that we need each other,
and be more mature about it. 

I wish we were
in each others' lives,
for good or ill.

I wish we could laugh,
talk books and poetry,
tell stories.

I wish we could admit
that while we can't be together,
we still love each other. 

I wish I could
tell you I miss you,
but I guess I just did.
