Step Lightly

When where and what
                    do I feel is the truth?
          There is __
                             no more war but
                            I feel you   s
                                                    n
                                             a
                                       k
                                             i
                                                  n
                                        g

           through
                     my minefield
                                    somehow
                                            blissfully
                                                    undetected/yet

                                        these sensors may
                                        EXPLODE if you
                                           choose to get
                                                   |tooclose|

     & it is a selfish mechanism
                 but I trust
               when I want to let loose
                  and show
                                       Emotion
  
                        You’ll let me go
                                    & feel it
                              because there is
                                no protection
                                     I can offer
                                  [like I’d offer]
                                          You

              simply because you’re afraid
                          that what’s pouring out of me
                             may spray onto you
                                                            Too.
