Even If You Dared - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sitting on a ledge...
And edgy!
Don't push me to show,
My ugly side.
Or flaunt that you can...
Get that close to try.

Why you are the only one,
I let frustrate me to get like this...
Wanting more to impress you each time,
Or just to unnerve you a little bit.
I haven't figured that out yet,
To control and handle it.

And you know this to be true too!
Knowing I will allow you to do what you do.
You will not be that one,
To see me stumble, fall or jump...
To conclusions!
Even if you dared.
