Is there no hope?
Will I always live in fear that I will
never be yours?

I want to be yours.
And if, one day, I am,
Must I fear that you will leave me
for someone that you love more?

I thought myself rid of fear.

Saying these things
I will no doubt bring you pain,
And that hurts me.

Saying nothing
Will not tell you how I feel.
I need you to know _

It's lonely alone
And secrets are lonely

I want to hold you
Be near you _
You are right to say
I love you
Is an understatement.

I don't know the words I need;
I would not say them if I did
For fear of making you feel trapped.

I feel I have already said
And done
Too much.

Had I said
And done
Less, you could have said no,
If that was what you wanted,
Easier.

But it means too much, you see.
