Unwanted Attention

How dare I speak
my heart to you?
You offer me joy
I don’t want.
I’m safer

when you don’t know me.
I wish
you would leave.

Telling you
would injure you.
My words would score
so deep,
so very deep.
You would bleed
all over the
I would always
be faced with
the evidence
of my crime.

I don’t have
the lust,
the will,
the strength,
to damage you.
You don’t deserve it.

You haven't earned it.
Your only crime

was offering hope
to the hopeless.
