Playing With Fire - Poem by Jessica Elizondo

You say you wanna be with
me, and make me happy.
But can you play with fire?
I'm hard to understand, can
you deal with that? Can you
Comfort me when I just wanna
scream? Many have failed,
are you up for the challenge?
Will you stand next to me if
my whole world goes up in
flames? Can you handle the
intensity in my eyes and the
fire in my heart? Can you
prove to me that you're not
like any other boy? Not like
all the rest? You say you want
to be with me, but are you
ready to play with fire?
