Fifteen


I want to be held
but not too close
or too tight.
I want to be spoken to,
but only if it isnít cruelly.
I want to be noticed,
but only for something good,
and I want to be different
(but not too much).
I want to be loved,
but not with the savagery of ninety-nine cent Harlequin novels.
I want to love,
but only if I won't get burned.
