Fearful


One emotion,
So many different interpretations.
Three simple words
Easily spoken,
Yet with uncertain results

It can imply possession,
Control, expectations,
The right to make demands,
With little need to give in return.
No more the need for affection.
It implies forever.

It can be the desire to give
Happiness, pleasure, comfort,
To value, respect and share.
An offer of unfailing friendship,
A shelter from the storm.
It may be forever, it may not.

Through life we become too afraid.
That which our souls tell us should enrich
We fear will destroy.
The emotion filling us with joy, we know,
Is destined to bring us sorrow.

Will I ever know when it is safe?
Will I ever again take the chance?
Or from here on will I stay emotionally mute?
Forever fearful to say once more
Those words,
“I love you”

But after my making thou write more true!
