Being "free" is what I want to be,
Be "fearless" is what you keep telling me.
Not afraid of much- there's a few fears left inside,
To the point where I'm so scared, I just want to cry.
Fearless.... It's easier said than done,
There's one fear that sure seems to have won.
To this specific fear,
I'll tell you right now and here.
There's a part 1 and part 2,
too scared to know what to do...
Part 1 is honest and true- it all is,
I dont even expect any responses.
Part 1 of my fear is admitting and saying "i love you" (I'm trying NOT to scare you too)
Part 2 of this is... I dont want to do anything to lose you.
You're important to me- read every word,
Dont want it to be awkward, only heard.
I'm okay with being friends and taking it slow,
For as long as I need to or until I'm old.
I hope to be in a relationship with you,
But I NEED you to tell me, so we're on the same page and I'm NOT confused.
Don't get me wrong, I'll wait as long as you need,
But this fear of mine maybe stronger than me.
there you go-one of few of my fears,
I dont want things to be weird.
If your not ready thats fine with me, forget this poem existed for thee.
Just know that I understand much,
Take as long as you need, there is no rush.
I had to say it or else I'd blow up,
That was hard to get off my chest....
If you'll excuse me now, it's time to throw up.
I've never been so terrified to lose someone- a great catch,
I honestly think that we make a great match.
