Poem at 20:53

There were a few

I cared for

But not anymore, since

You came to remind me 

Of the loosely held law

That I’ve broken before

When people in the same boat 

Come knocking my door,

Can’t converse for long 

Because then it’ll be clear

That you make me grin

From ear to ear, and 

I’d like to protect

The little girl that hides 

And shields her heart 

Before it bursts in tides,

It’s a longer game, this one

But we’re both fools 

Knowing quite well we’re swimming

In separate shallow pools

Where the shark is so desired

That one just drools

At recklessly devouring what lies behind rules.
