a dangerous beauty

a dangerous beauty

are the words

I Love You



enticing with each syllable

rose blooming

a bouquet of feeling

and at the end of day there is a thorn

threatening to prick your happiness



so  gather up the petals

press them to your chest

take in the remaining warmth

and if you move quick enough, then maybe

you can catch these fleeting moments

and keep this dangerous beauty from running away



hang these roses upside down

preserving these memories

beautiful and free, dangling in your eyes

sweet smelling and soft to caress

hold them close at night as you sleep

pretending these moments will come true

and this dangerous beauty

still remembered your name



a dangerous beauty

are the words

I Love You
