Feared not to be Loved
by Fabiola Gomez
You said you loved me
You said you loved me greater
throughout the afternoon.
But somehow when nighttime came,
you didn't mention you loved me at all.
A shrill of fright came to me
that made me pant harder.
When I took that one look at you
I was filled with much consternation;
but my heart said,
"Have you fear?"
You came to me
and brushed your lips upon mine,
and as you held me
this love I had for you
wrapped around us in such delight.
Then in your sweet voice
you said to me,
"Just because I don't say it
doesn't mean I don't feel it for you."
The bird came to its nest.
The swan came back to swim in its lake
after the harshful storm.
The drums of my heart started to beat.
The fright was with me...
