3.4.10

March 4, 2010

No,
I don’t want to.

Why?

Because I am afraid.

I am afraid to love,
for I’m afraid I will fall

I am afraid of the dark,
for I dislike uncertainty

I am afraid of spiders,
for I do not like things
clinging to me

I am afraid of isolation,
for I need someone to hold

I’m afraid of you,
for I love you,
and I would stand in the dark with you,
and I would cross 1000 spiders to get to you,
and with you, I would never be alone.
