you’ve been warned

because i’m just another me
looking for one momentary
fragment of a dream,
a story whose seams
are always frayed; words faded,
reactions at best jaded.

because i’m not a cool photo
or a cigarette
burning away unnoticed.
i’m a blaze
and i shall take you with me.
you’ve been warned.

Originally written March 28, 2012, trying to tell someone who was falling for me (and who I had fallen for already) that she might be making a mistake. Well, I guess at least she realised her mistake somewhere down the line.
