"Its better to look absolutly ridiculous than absolutly boring." -Marilyn Monroe

In the absence of all hatred,
A feeling stronger than passion itself,
Lust isn't the key component,
Yet it seems to start it all.

Her heart is broken,
Her soul ripped apart,
Damaged beyond repair.

A starnger,
Unknown but interesting,
Appealing and intimidating at the same time.

Shy and anxious all at once,
But determined all the same,
Scared as she is,
Willing to take the risk.

All signs read caution,
They all say turn back,
But the more and more she sees them,
The more determined she is to move forward.

Such a beautiful word,
It goes hand in hand with love,
No matter what the signs say she trusts this path,
Willing to sacrifice it all,
Just to move forward.

The author's comments:
This was a time in my life (about three or four months ago) when I met a guy that everyone at school said that he couldn't be trusted. This was kind of a poem that I wrote because I was turning a deaf ear to what the "crowd" was saying and just gave him the benefit of the doubt because I didn't know him and i didn't want other people's remarks to taint my opinion of him.
