the first day i saw you
i am not good enough for you
the first day we spoke
i would turn into a fool
the day i said “i love you”
you would say no
the day you went out of town
i would go mental
the day we fought
we would never talk
the day we slept alone
i would sleep alone for the rest of my life
the day i saw you with another man
i am not a better man
the day we parted ways
i would never live again
days turned into weeks
weeks turned into months
the days i feared i would never live again
i forgot how to live
standing before the mirror
watching the scars slowly disappear
the days i feared
fear would took control of my life
slowly faded away into memory
stepping outside into this world once again
walking with a new found energy
i find you looking at me
and i fear
that you might be letting fear take control
walking towards you
i lean closer and whisper
“fear not; don’t fear what happened (the past);
rip out the mask that you are wearing;
come out from behind the veil of fear;
take my hand and walk with me;
trust me, i am there for you;
believe me ‘I Love You’;”
note: ‘you’ actually represents 2 different people. the first 25 lines represents a different person and the last 10 lines represents another “new” person :). In the first scenario, i feared. In the second one, after i have overcome my fear, i find her (this new person) “engulfed” in the same fear.
Some nice quotes on fear:
Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.
Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.
One hates what one fears.
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
Fear of self is the greatest of all terrors, the deepest of all dread, the commonest of all mistakes. From it grows failure. Because of it, life is a mockery. Out of it comes despair.
Louis E. Boone
Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.
Fear is the prison of the heart.
