i am afraid of the damage
that i know i'm capable of doing
to you, your trusting eyes

what if i get carried away? i've
yet to do so, and i've never
intentionally hurt anyone. but
it's just that

i am not a good person
and you are. so logically.
it stands to reason. that i
will be the one to commit the crime
in the end

that tears us apart. whenever that is.
and that scares me. it scares me a lot.

because something about you is
really just beautiful
