Right up there

I’m right up there, 
Where you wanted me to be,
Intertwining fragrances; Lump in the throat,
Tickle of your fur; Butterflies in my stomach,
I’m right up there,
Yet, so far away.

I’m right up there,
Where I wanted to be,
Frozen in your warmth; The icy cold touch,
Thinking caps on a break; My watch choosing to pause,
I’m right up there,
Yet, so far away.

We’re right up there,
Where we wanted to be,
Listening to heartbeats; Talking with fingers,
Peace amidst the tension; Dangerous as it may be,
We’re right up there,
Yet, so far away.
