For the first one...

For the first one...

You seemed so bold at first
audacious was your nature
Then as time ticked on between us
you slipped quietly away
I never fully understood why
             you hesitated
Did I annoy you with my certainty
even though I was fresh and new
Did I scare you with my clinging
wanting to absorb everything I could
I was simply learning what you
             already knew
Yet with all of our combined faults
we were honest in the dark
Speaking softly, though alone,
of dreams realistic and strange
I was comfortable among the shadows
             of your room
