Fold

I want to hold you close
And I know you want it too
But I get scared when it gets real
I don’t know why, but it is true

I fold like the letter
I want to write but never do
I fold like a fool with four aces,
Scared of losing, scared of you

I flush when I hear your voice
Your smile like red peppers
Peppering your poise
Impossibly enthralling

And I heard my calling
I can’t complain
I couldn’t recreate this falling — 
I raise
