Really Like

I really like you.
Simple words, yet
fraught with peril,
hiding the growing
feelings
of gratitude
that you appeared
when you did
and
longing
to return
to hold each other
and
dread
that plans now
will break when
you realize I
am not her
or some other
construct
you’ve built up
created like a shining
goddess who
swoops down from on high
bringing destruction
in her wake.
And you cannot
even ask me
for what
I know
I want,
someday.
But I
really like you
and you
really like me
and our dance,
graceful and serene,
flows on.
