You are not going to make me like you!
You, with your perfect skin that glows ebony
My fingers itching to reach out and touch it
If only for a moment
Just because you make me laugh
Because you’re always pushing my boundaries
Seeing how much of me I can be
Breaking down walls
Haiya! You’re still insisting?
I’m telling you, I’m not going to fall for you!
Not even though sometimes I miss your calls because I’m too busy staring at your name on caller ID
Not even though your mum is awesome and your dad has decided I’m family
I’ve seen the girls in your life
The blonde undeserving girls in your life
The smart undeserving girls in your life
The large number of girls in your life and it’s not going to happen.
I’m not standing up to be counted amongst them
Thanks, but this heart, this one you see here all wrapped up and bandaged and traumatized
This heart- I’m protecting it
So scale all the walls you want
Then go away
