You can touch a rose
And only feel thorns?
You can only look at a flower
And see dirt
You can only look at someone beautiful
And wonder if their insides are the same
You can only stand on top of a mountain
And think of how hard it was to get there
You can only look at a piece of art
And wonder how tortured the artist was
And what if
You can only see a beautiful man
And wonder "If I fall in love with him, how bad is he going to hurt me?"
What do you do then?
