Hopes Tempting Touch
by Lorenakoran

 

He came recommended

and what a shame

I let my guard down

and now I’m ashamed

but it’s my cross

I didn’t ask for trouble

my past set it in motion

I have to deal with the rubble

*

so if he doesn’t like it

if it’s asking too much

I’ll get over this sadness

but I’m not in a rush

*

I tell myself to go back to

being cool with being on my own

with plans for my future

and no ties to a home

*

seems to take time

to move past the notion

and give up that ride

*

my baggage isn’t shameful

my burden isn’t all pain

for those days of sunshine

I’ll make it through the rain
