Lean

I don’t know why
I can’t just lean into you
Why we can’t seem
To just get right

We were so close
But that was a long time ago
Or maybe it wasn’t
Time is a slippery fool

I always felt like
I could come to you with anything
You were a safe place
Where I could be myself

Our laughter could
Power any machine
And now it only
Feels dull and hollow

Maybe it’s the distance
Maybe it isn’t
It’s so weird to grow apart
When you were just right here

I don’t know that I’ll ever
Be able to lean into you
People change
We’ve changed

And I miss you
