Better to be safe than in love,
better than allowing someone to
break down your walls and leave you
naked and exposed. Better to keep
the best parts of you so they aren't used
and then dumped in the trash. Better
than having your life sucked out of you,
your heart trampled on,
your life turned inside out,
then told you're no longer worth it,
no longer good enough.
Better safe than in love.
