Gone Too Far

We have come too far my love,
we’ve pushed the limits, it’s time to retreat.
Our coy game has taken us to uncharted oceans,
pull back! pull back! I implore, I entreat.

I’ve hinted at my feelings for you,
you’ve smiled and made your gestures.
But no words come from your lips,
so I pull back for safety measures.
