It’s been three years now,
Days have passed,
Months have passed, and still
I haven’t told her how I feel.
I have loved her with all
From the beginning
It was love. However, I’ve had a fear
Of telling her how I feel.
Fear suppressed the love I had
I couldn’t tell her and all.
I could do love her from the shadows,
Love her in darkness.
And because of that fear, I had to
Watch her submit her love to another man
And I had no choice but to move on.
I had to play tough even though I was hurting.
Truly fear is more potent than love.
