Is it safe to Fall...yet

The scarce embrace of 

someone so distant,

 

Yet so warm you feel, just by 

hearing their voice

 

And the dark cloud hangs over you,

only because you want them there,

 

But yet a simple text makes it

feel like they've been beside 

you all along

 

That mirror that you are so 

afraid of peering into, fearing

Your flaws: its been replaced 

by someone who has made

Your blemishes into a 

masterpiece...

 

...careful! You know if you wade 

in the water too deep

Then he may begin to unfold 

you like the fragile flower you

are

 

...and pick off your petals , He 

picks off your hope

 

...but take that chance, cause 

you've never felt so wrapped up 

in  a blanket of fantasies before:

even if it doesn't happen, at least my heart

was torn by imagination

 

I'm going too far, scared to dive in, 

to undress my mind 

 

Is this even what I think it is?

 

Cause if it is, then my past won't be a problem ...

 

I'm bruised and battered... I need medicine, something

to keep me 

 

From fading away...throwing

my faith in love away

 

               But I want it, but i want it

                       but I want it

                BUT I NEED IT

 

  Is sit safe to fall...yet

               ...tell me before I fall anyhow 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
