Fear

I never had the courage
To say…
I need you…
More than a friend
I had a
Fear…

My love for you
Is…
Like…
A bird’s love for the sky
A river’s love for the ocean
A cloud’s love for the rain
I told you that…
I definitely told you
But only in dreams…

One day
I decided to
Tell you
About
My heart
That
It always beats for you

I ran
Towards your place
Suddenly
My…
Face turned pale
Blood rushed to face
Body was numb
Legs were frozen

It seemed like midnight
Just in midday

All…
A smile’s love for the lips
A tree’s love for the breeze
A fish’s love for the water
That all …
Love…
Started the flowing of
My eyes

You were busy
Arms holding him tight
Lips locked
And
My lips
Tried to say something
But
They fell to the fear
I always had.
