A POEM BY BETH M.

You act like I’ll burn you as soon as you touch me
But babe, I haven’t set myself on fire in years.
I’m cold and hard and would most likely melt
If you’d let your skin meet mine.

Never thought I’d be in this place again.
Never thought I’d be this girl again.
But I like it.
But I want it.

You keep saying you’re dangerous,
So dangerous,
Forgetting that we’re both standing on the same ledge.
I may not have handed out very many scars
But darling, I’m dangerous too.

There’s something between us
And we’re both revved up like race cars
Waiting for the light to turn green.
There’s something between us
And we both sit alone
Each on the wrong side of the confessional screen.
