I hug you and then I make a retreat

And sneak away while you talk on and on

I cry and I've got Halo on repeat

I don't know how to stay when you are gone

But you burst in and kiss me on the lips

Though all this time I thought that you were straight

I feel the ghost of your hands on my hips

While at the airport I seek out my gate

You text me and say you hope I am well

And that you did not scare me with the kiss

And I assure you everything is swell

And, more than any other, you I'll miss

And when you ask to visit me so soon

It takes all of my will to not just swoon
