Too Close

He sat too close to me 

I could hear his breathing 

I could hear my heartbeat getting faster and I’m sure he could too

He was right there 

And I could hear his lungs shuddering every time he let the cold air in

I could hear his heartbeat, slow and steady unlike mine

 

I turned up the music, trying to drown him out

I looked out the window, trying to unsee

How close he was
