I’m Scared


 

Our eyes meet across this crowded space,

Eyes with the warmth and promise of untold pleasures holds me captive,

They dive into the depths of my soul,

Beseeching, beckoning, wanting,

I’m scared,

And I don’t want to be,

I want to explore the mysteries that are being offered,

I want to accept the invitation being made,

At this moment I feel naked before you, my soul bare,

Can you see the scars that still remain?

I’m scared,

I look at you and wonder will you add to or erase my pain?

Just look past the fear that you see,

It’s not you I fear, but me.
I’m scared,

And I don’t want to be,

The blush of want stains my cheeks,

As I gaze into your eyes,

A silent refrain whispers ‘See me, feel me, know me, love me’,

And now I feel crushed by the intensity of your desire,

I cannot take this any longer and I look away,

I’m scared,

The enchantment now broken, the moment slipping by,

A panicked voice within cries “Look back, look back!”

I must and bringing my gaze back I watch you turn and walk away.

For that brief moment the heart was ignited,

And for me, will it always be this way?

I’m scared.

I watch you now I cannot look away,

A silent pleading follows you,

Just as you get to the door you turn,

Our eyes meet across this crowded space,

A smile manages to collect itself on my lips and it is returned,

With anticipation you move toward me and I await our first ‘Hello’.
