Dirty Corner - Poem by Harley White
Hey you out there
and I'm certainly not going
to let you close enough
to know me,
because if you really knew me
you couldn't love me—
that's for sure—
and if somehow
you did get close enough
and if you did feel love for me,
then there would be something wrong with you
and I certainly couldn't let myself love you
because you'd be unlovable like me.
See what I mean?
So stay away!
