Cement beneath carpet

You look deceptively soft.
I caress your personality lovingly
but
I feel the hard coldness
the unrelenting firmness
underneath the false velvet.

I see the signs in an exquisite
chilling
despairing feeling.

If I allow myself to fall for you,
on you
I fear my bones may break
my heart may stop

I will be dropped and I will shatter.
I cannot take that chance.
Forgive me, I cannot take that chance.
