the torture these words
inflict on me
is sometimes
more than I can bear
we have love
yet I fear it
and what if
it leaves me
I dare not think
of our future
it scares me
more than anything
ever did before
will we be together
maybe you are the one
to share forever
with me
but what if
will I be alone
destined to return
to my shadow wanderings
even when all seems hopeless
do you feel this fear
or if you are certain
can you share this with me
I need to know
if we have a future
or if
this is not what
I have waited so long for
because fear can destroy
what took so long to create
I have no idea
how to go on
reassure me please
make the shadows
set me free
