Almost Love

Almost Love

A Poem by Nico




leave me in the
dark for a moment
leave me like this
I did not expect to leave
unprotected this soon
really I didn't...


and your shot to my heart
finds me unprepared, you know
I'm very careful, you know
because I haven’t forgotten
the blows I have taken so far
and if I am not wrong
you haven't forgotten either.


we have collapsed love
stories behind us, busted
love stories, so we decided
to wait a little bit, we have
expressed clear words...


you are afraid we can not
stay together without ever
committing to each other,
and without throwing
each other out of balance,
I'm afraid too, yes
now that it's almost love
yes, now that it's almost love
it scares and
confuses us...
you are afraid
and so am I.


leave me in the dark
for a moment
maybe this fire will
extinguish by itself
you are afraid
it won't and so am I
now that it's almost love
yes, now that it's
almost love...

Our eyes will be our truth
they will speak for us
look closely and our minds
will now that this scare we have
is almost love.
