I fear this is a trick,

this excitement in my blood

that keeps a smile

lingering.

 

I fear it’s just a ploy

to get his needs met

without regard

to mine.

 

I know my fears

are unfounded.

 

I know that i’ve

been hurt.

 

I trust he is real

a man of his word

who sees me as

deserving.

 

I trust he won’t

reopen my scars

and leave me alone

bleeding.

 

I am learning

to trust again.

 

But still, I find myself

fearing.

  1. How nice that life and love still hold such anticipation for the young. I having been around the block many times have lost the thrill of willingness to be all that they want as well as some compromises as to what I will or won’t accept from them. Refreshing to have a vision of young love once again. Hurt is a part of life, it makes for appreciation and value.com. Have no fear love like you’ve never known is coming even if this is not it and always value yourself. I would very much like for you to visit marktone.wordpress.com and if moved please leave a comment.

  2. I find it funny that you think i’m young. I am a middle aged single mom of 3. I’ve been married and divorced twice. But i can still feel deeply, so i guess that’s a good thing. =) I’ll definitely check out your site. Thanks for reading and commenting.
