i keep a certain distance
(from you, from everybody)
because, yes, i prefer being safe
away from prying eyes and
analytical-psychological terms, all that jazz

because, i don't know, you know, it's just
it's complicated, i guess
and i wouldn't expect you to understand -
wouldn't ask you to understand;

i hardly understand it, so why should you
even try?

all i know is
i hate that it affects other people
but i keep a distance,

i just keep a certain distance
