Taking the fall
I’m not looking for perfection,
I’m not looking for scripted lines.
I can’t be swayed by ego, or riches.
I only want your time.
So remove for me your mask,
Your lies, your misconceptions.
Leave your judgment at the door,
Your biased preconceptions.
My soul is honest, open.
And I ask from you the same.
Because that’s the way it should be,
The heart is not a game.
If you’re not afraid, you should be.
But I need you to be brave.
It takes a brave soul to risk so much,
and it’s that honesty I crave.
If you’re not willing to risk exposure,
If you’re not willing to risk at all.
Then you can take this goodbye as closure.
Because you win only if you risk the fall.
