Wordplay Wednesday: Competition

Lingers in the air
A thickness
That separates
Me now from you
Defenses elevated
Skepticism awakened
Observations acute
Afraid of past repeating
In present
Indicating progress
Not made
Unclear if perceptions
Are real or imagined
Proceeding with caution
I wait

Written in January of 2011, when I was worried that a friend of mine was flirting with a guy I liked.
