Risking My Soul

If I dared to let someone in
perhaps it might damage my soul.
My fear, would I then be whole?
I muse a little, but who knows,
what a problem that might pose.
If I did take that fearful step
and risk myself to love another,
perhaps I would be free of the other
that person who they call my mother.

The poet has put up a a question mark on initiating or perpetuating certain kinds of relationships in life. More often than naught, it requires a study on the basis of behavioural psychology at personal level. Thanks for sharing.
On several levels, I'm very scared of relationships, of any sort.
susan, like the poem, when it comes to love, some times i think, no way....
