FEAR
by Thomas Lynn Barnes

 I am afraid
 To do
 Or say
 The wrong thing
 Afraid to chase
 You away

 I fear
 Not knowing
 Whether
 You care 
 Or won't
 Is your silence
 Because 
 You love me
 Or because
 You don't

 I fear 
 That you fear
 And with us both at odds
 We work ourselves apart
 When we could work together
 And make of ourselves one heart

 What a pity it would be
 If this were so
 If in our fear
 We lose the chance
 To let our feelings show

 Fear is the little death
 That kills in fits and starts
 Keeps us from being true
 To ourselves 
 And keeps darkness in our hearts

 Look within and conquer fear
 Kill the seeds it's sown
 Know that I will be here
 And earn what lovers own
