Itís Dangerous to Love

Too often,
It’s dangerous to love.
Sometimes physical scars
Are nothing compared to
The soul scars that
Scare the heart

The ones that
Torment you at 3 a.m.
With memories that know
Just when to arrive
– the moment you begin sporting
The merest shadow of a smile.

It’s too dangerous to love,
Much too dangerous to play,
Much too dangerous to dance
When it can hurt this way.

Sit it out,
I’d say,
Sit it out.
Just stay away.
