It’s not being with you
That scares me or the
Thought of being alone
It’s not looking in your
Eyes thinking this is
Truly the home of a
Kind and loving soul
Nor is it that shiver
I get when you’ve
Gone home
It’s that eternity it
Takes for you to pick
Up the phone when
I call you just to say
It’s that fraction of
Time once I’ve said
Goodbye that last what
Seems an eternity as
I ask myself why did
I not just kiss you or
Tell you how I feel
It’s those unknown
Seconds that truly
Make me feel
Scared of loving
