I am not afraid!

I am not afraid of falling in love,
But I am afraid of those “ifs” and “buts”that follows;

I am not afraid of initiating a move,
But I am afraid of being labelled outrageous;

I am not afraid of living in present,
But I am afraid of past that still haunts;

I am not afraid of slow walks,
But I am afraid of being left midway;

I am not afraid of being fair,
But I am afraid of being brutally stabbed through betrayal;

I am not afraid of endless conversations,
But I am afraid of deadly silences;

I am not at all afraid of beautiful nights under the sky,
But I am afraid of insomniac eyes;

I am am not at all afraid of reading you,
But I am afraid of being forgotten;

I am not at all afraid of offering comfort,
But I am afraid of getting discomfort in return;

I am not at all afraid of letting my guards down,
But I am afraid of getting replaced;

I am not at all afraid of adjustments and commitments,
But I am afraid of you leaving my hand;

I am not at all afraid of promising my forever;
But I am afraid of uncertainty from the other end;

Believe me I am not at all afraid of falling in love,
But I am just afraid of my inability to rise back;

For being in love is not new,
But the courage and dedication it takes to maintain a relationship is possessed only by few.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
