i have a secret
and this is how is goes:
i am terrified of falling in love.
most everyone i know has done it at some point or are in it's throes as we speak
most everyone i love has loved me back
most everyone i know is scared of something
but i think i
i am the most cowardly.
for who is scared of
the courage of a lion
the heart of a warrior
the eyes of a doe
the adventuresomeness of a porcupine.
that sums me up.
up and into this fairy tale
that floats into neverneverland where i can be safe forever and never
have to be a grown up or love to the depths and beyond.
risk giving myself over to another human being just as flawed as myself.
no no no, says me.
i would much prefer to crouch
behind those bushes over there, you see
most everyone else
fall in love.
that's good enough for me.
wait, what? you say that's a double standard?
oh that's ok, i'm not afraid of those.
ok fine, i am.
nevermind the whole thing.
see, this is why i never tell you secrets.
