Poetry Corner – “Water”

Danger you are
But I walk on the wire
“Be good, girl” but I don’t heed
The warning to preserve me

Elusive as smoke
I scent you in the air
I follow the trail
Again we resume

Dare me to come, I will
Dare me to fall, I’ll spill
The contents of me at your feet
Like I’m made of water

Take care, my heart is gone
You’ll find I’m made of stone
I can’t battle you fair
If I’m mush in my underwear

She’ll touch and leave
Marks scrubbed with soap
Underneath you’ll find scars
The only thing I call mine

Dare me to run, I’ll fly
Dare me to tell, I’ll lie
Until inside you’ve been satisfied
Like I’m made of water
