Unsafe

25 Apr

I want to feel safe

… Just nestled against your chest and in your arms.

I want to feel safe

… To tell the truth and know you’ll still be there to hold my hand.

I want to feel safe 

…working and not worrying if it’s just a ploy to make a pass.

I want to feel safe

…walking to school, dancing in the club, and anywhere for that fact.

I want to feel safe 

…to go on a date without the expectation of sex.

I want to feel safe

…enough to speak up without being verbally attacked. 

I want to feel safe 

…so I can speak vulnerably about the vault of pain locked in my chest.

I want to feel safe 

…but at every corner seems a predator, ready to exploit whatever’s next.
