The Fear of Love

The Fear of Love

I am reopening my heart once again,
Deciding to give love another try.
Hoping that it's not yet another mistake,
Being added to the many I've already made.
I'm so afraid of what the outcome will be this time.

It has me crying something fierce.
I just can't control this growing fear inside of me,
It's strongly pulling and tugging at my aching heart.
The heart that's beating rapidly inside my chest as if it might explode,
It makes it hard for me to catch my breath, because the fear has taken its toll.

It has me panting like a dog after a long run.
And my hand in which this pen I hold is trembling madly.
It's shaking like an after shock of an earthquake.
Perspiration is beaded across my forehead
Like a window pane after many hours of rain.

Oh, I am so afraid! Deep inside the butterflies are taking over.
Nausea has found its way in and has me clinging to my desk.
The room is spending around me as if it's a merry-go-round,
And my throat is tightening up, as if it's about to close completely.
If love hadn't been so deceiving before, I wouldn't be so afraid.

I really don't know what to do about this situation I have.
I'm already deeply in love, but it's making me ill inside.
Maybe I should have waited a little longer before jumping in again.
Time should have been taken to ensure that I made the right choice.
Love is one of my biggest fears now, because it has hurt me so many times.
