Lying next to you
looking into your blue-grey eyes
I feel too close to something
and too far away from something else
I wonder if they go hand-in-hand
as we seem to do
but I am scared to utter
that four-letter word
the one that opens or closes
frightened because I don't really know
frightened because I do really know
What if I put your love in my hands
and I break it
What if I put your love in my heart
and it turns cold
What if I depend on your love
and it leaves me
but how can I speak of your love
when mine is the witness
sworn-in
cross-examined
and still a mystery to me
I cannot possibly explain everything
in the short time that we have
the Fates tempt me with partial control
of the duties they hold so dear
and then laugh as I fail
So now I must ask you to stay
if not for love
for something that could be it
for when you leave me
you leave me to a world
I cannot look in the face
without a tear
rolling softly down my cheek

Love's a big word - to be used with care, I think! Nice poem.
