If I Dare

definitions of love
have a way of destroying that which they try to protect…
ironic, but true, I fear…
you see…
I learned the hard way…
the words you say…
can alter your lover’s perception of you…
if you cling too tightly…
seem too weak…
the words you speak…
so sacred…
definitions of love
have a way of nailing you in a box…
long forgotten looks of adoration
faded like cheap silk flowers marking one’s grave…
behave heart, I say,
yet she is completely rebellious in her impulsiveness
slow down, I beg her,
yet she has poked her tapered fingers in her ears…
jeering me…
with thoughts of him…
I beckon her to loosen her grasp,
yet she closes her eyes to my request…
pretending not to see the fear in my eyes…
her disguise- laughter…
knowing there is no stopping her now…
she takes her bow and taunts me to define her…
if I dare…
