Fearing Love

He still gives me that look of regret
As if he did something wrong
Oh how I curse the day we met
Has it been that long

A year I think, or that's what I believe
September fifth was the day
And no matter what, I will always grieve
At all the words I couldn't say

But I wouldn't listen when he tried to speak
For the fear of that certain word
Because I knew to me it would pique
If "I love you" was what I heard

Don't get me wrong, I loved him so
I just had a fear of getting my heart destroyed
And if I could, I would let him know
He's the one I always enjoyed


This is a poem I wrote after I broke up with a guy I was falling in love with. I had a fear of us falling for each other so I broke up with him. For a while e was convinced that he had done something wrong. I never did explain to him why I broke up with him. I just told him that he did nothing wrong. Well, please tell me what you think.

Well done Lyn, loved the poem. Withholding feelings or sharing them sometimes goes wrong for all of us. I have two classic examples myself... I send (HUGS) you way, for I know occasionally the loss or mistakes still rear their heads and worry you.

How well I understand this fear! I think the man I've loved the most is the one I failed to tell. I wrote a similar poem a while back (Free Fall), it's in Open Poetry 1 if you can get into it. Falling in love is a very scary thing. You know what they say: fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Now that you've faced your fear, would it be possible to get back together with this man and tell him what happened?

The bitterest tears shed are those of regret

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
