I Need Your Help

I have an unreasonable request to make.
I need your help.
It's like this:
You understand me.
I feel I can trust you.
I have trouble opening up
But a desperate need to do so.
I can open up to you.
I want to.
I need to.
But everything I can think of
To do
Or to say
I want to get very close to you
But all the ways I can think of
Conflict with an important reality:
You are already in a relationship.
I've gotten to the point
Where even a conversation
If it went where I want it to
Would overstep appropriate boundries.
Is there something
That we can do together
That will get us close
But not too close?
Can you help me find it?
