Don’t be afraid of this love.

Don’t be afraid of this love.

You don’t have to be afraid of this here,
you don’t have to be afraid of this love.

You don’t have to worry about this smile. There is no homework to do because there is no hard lesson you will be forced to learn.

You don’t have to keep that guard up,
making sure your heart is always out of reach.

You don’t have to be a colder version of yourself, hoping that you will warm up to me.

My heart walks on eggshells as well when it sees the possibility of love with someone.
It becomes anxious to climb out of the uncertainty and catch a glimpse of what is going to be.

I’ve been you before,
I’ve been through some things before.
If anything,
I am trying to actually complete this journey that I’ve been on already.
But I want one that never ends,
one where I don’t have to wear a mask that keeps my loving soul in the shadows.

You don’t have to be afraid,
I have no tricks up my sleeves.
I’m just trying to love someone who’s been looking for the love I’ve been looking for.

  • nice
  • This touched my heart. I finally found my penguin, but because of all the men who treated bad, I am dealing with the fear of being truly loved.
  • Wow! It’s as if you are in my heart; in my head; in the words I want to speak.
  • This was absolutely wonderful. This is exactly how I feel and trying to let my guard down and give and receive the love I deserve and that my partner deserves. It’s been hard for me to trust but each day is a new day to try again and do better.
