You Can’t So I Shouldn’t

I can take
care of myself.

But I admit

despite my
better judgement

at this moment

I want to
let you
take care
of me.

You’re the
only man
who can.

I shouldn’t
because
you can’t

but I admit
I want to
let you.

Any other man
would make
me angry.

Any other man
would try
to win.

Any other man
would give up
before they
even got
started.

But you aren’t
any other man.

I can take
care of myself.

And anyway
you can’t
so I shouldn’t

but I admit
I want
to let you.
