Intimacy Is Unnerving

Intimacy is unnerving
loving is a threat
a hug unendurable.

The primitive fights the urge to love
it’s an adaptation unsuited to the reptile
something within resists the tidal pull to evolve.

To a creature reluctant to come in from the cold
the call of the wild is welcome distraction
drowns out the cries of others.

An unguarded smile reveals sharp teeth
open arms are a trap set to be sprung
a rough beast cringes when caressed.
