Fear of Love

Have you ever wanted something so much it hurt,

it was close yet so far away, if only you could reach out to touch it, to feel it, to hold it close to you,

but you can’t and you don’t know why, is it fear holding you back? If so fear of what? Is it fear of being hurt, or the fear of being rejected?

Your head is exploding with what-ifs, but the one that sticks out more than any is what if I’m not good enough,

what if I ruin everything by just being me?

I would do anything to know what would happen if I just spoke up about how I feel, but I don’t, so for now I’m letting fear control me,

stopping me from saying the three words I’ve only dreamed of telling you…

I love you
