Putting Everything On The Line - Poem by Saucy Elmo

Here I go again.
Falling headfirst and expecting to land on my feet.
I see those eyes,
And for once I'm feeling complete.
I've never fallen so hard before.
Because for so long, my heart's been torn.

But nostalgia's kicking in.
It's haunting me.
Telling me this is all a game.
I'm fighting my fears.
Putting everything on the line.
Not giving up this time.

But I'm not confident!
So insecure!
I'm so terrified,
That you'll just walk away! !

I'm afraid, afraid of how I'm feeling.
Afraid, afraid that I'm just dreaming.
Is this a lie?
Did I find someone who knows how I feel inside?

I'm afraid, afraid this will all disappear.
For once I'm seeing things crystal clear.
Is this happening? Is this a dream?
Am I going to wake and find this a distant memory?
