Not Without Risk – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

RDP Saturday – Trouble

“She slept with wolves without fear, for the wolves knew a lion was among them.”  R.M. Drake

Not Without Risk

I was not in control,
your words caught in my mouth
teasing sensibilities,
breaking the rules,
a dangerous energy
so fragile
I hesitated,
catching glimpses,
not without risk,
you were trouble,
and I was adrift,
but by that time
you were my hero.
