The Raw Truth

The raw truth is that

you can make me or break me.

One simple smile seems

so innocent but faintly

below that heart-melting

and flashing smile

is something darker

and it lingers a while.

So love me or destroy me

I give my heart just the same.

The chances I am taking

could leave my heart maimed

and still I would rather risk

what little I have on you

because it’s that damn smile

that makes me do what I do.
