I’m Keeping You at Arm’s Length

I’m keeping you at arm’s length
Because it’s the right thing to do,
Because I believe it’s not yet the appointed time.
I’m not even sure if I’m making the right judgment.
I’m keeping you at arm’s length
Because I don’t want things to get messy.
Closer means risky and risk unguarded can lead to disaster.
I’m keeping you at arm’s length
Because I’m busy,
I’m busy trying to get my life together
And keep it from falling apart.
I’m keeping you at arm’s length
Because I’m not bold enough
And I don’t want to get vulnerable.
I’m afraid that by holding you close,
I might end up pushing you away.
I’m keeping you at arm’s length
Because that’s the only way I can keep you.
