I was scared
Once
A long time back
Or so it seems
Of being hurt,
Scared so bad
That I couldn’t let anyone
Come close to me.

Then you came along
And I feel warmth
And strength
And faith
And hope
Somehow
I’m scared no more.

But
Now I have
New things to be scared of
And today
I feel most scared
Of myself
Because
When you stand by me
All weak and soft
Telling me things you tell no one
And believing in me
Not to hurt you
The way I look at you
I’m terrified
Of the me
That’ll want to pinch you
Slowly
And deep
Into the part of your heart
That needs most
To feel loved.
