I'm not afraid to fall from the sky
secured only by my feet.
It doesn't frighten me to endure
fire's radiating heat.
I do not fear the grip of strangers
or weather catastrophe.
I never cower in the dark –
I prefer it, actually.
Spiders: you don't scare me.
Ghosts: I can't be spooked.
Gory Halloween masks:
I wouldn't have even looked.
Anxiety doesn't plague me
when I consider death.
I'm not alarmed of the moment
when I'll breathe my final breath.
But boys, on the other hand –
Oh God, please NO!
Their words are so complicated,
their thoughts, a fatal blow.
Butterflies dance in my stomach
when I dream about one night,
he'll look at me, grab my hand
and squeeze it really tight!
I can't bear to finally tell him
about how I truly feel.
I know he will reject me,
and from that, I will not heal.
Boys are like piranhas
that eat away at your soul.
They try to shatter my heart
to keep it from being whole.
I can handle anything.
You name it, it won't come near!
But boys, horrible boys,
are my greatest and only fear.

Thank you. :) I had insecurities putting in online... I thought no one would read it. I still do think it's childish, I wrote it while looking at this guy I had a crush on for the longest time in grade school, haha :p But thanks so much for your insight! I'll definitely take a look at your work.

that was beautiful ! it was cute , and rhythmic ; and furthermore , the rhymes weren't forced at all . they seemed to flow effortlessly . you're a wonderful writer , and although your idea for this might be simple and - as some people might wrongly suggest - childish , it is actually complex and mature . it's like a girl's favorite nursery rhyme . (: congrats on this , you did a wonderful job .

if you'd like , maybe you'd like to check out a few of my pieces . they didn't get published , like yours , but i think you might like them .

great job , again . (:
