Open Letter to Potentials

Please don’t call,
Unless I give you my number.

Please don’t throw stones at my window,
Unless we have a midnight appointment.

Please don’t enter through the window,
Unless I invite you in.

Please don’t send me roses,
Unless they’re alive.

Please don’t whisper things in my ear,
Unless they’re sweet.

Please don’t promise to never leave,
After I’ve asked you to go.

They say the difference between potentials,
Lover or Predator,
Is “hot” or “not”.
The real difference between potentials,
Euphoria or Terror,
Is yes. Or no.
