Love Is On It’s Way

Did you see the look
that crept into their eyes
it’s no use now to hide
they’re completely blind.
I want someone
to come take my hand
and show me how to love
before I catch some deadly virus
and become a burden
that no one wants to touch.
Today I am handsome
otherwise I wouldn’t break the ban
keeping six feet away
I am tortured to know
you’re as close
as an outstretched hand.
How were we supposed to know
one day we’d wake up
and be told
we can’t kiss anymore.
Maybe or perhaps
we could stay all locked up
in your room
like we used to
when we could freely
come and go.
Love is on its way
I was told
the sickness
isn’t all that deadly
I’d take a chance
if you’re ready.
