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.
