Each time you say I love you

I flinch

Every time you want to kiss

I want to pull away

When you call

I'm afraid to answer

Each e-mail

I fear to read

There's a past

One not so distant

It's controlling

Holding me back

There's scars

Ones I can't erase

Fear grips me

As your arms hold me tighter

I feel like running at times

But something is pulling

Pulling me back to you

This something I can't explain

But it leaves me screaming out your name

When darkness grabs at me

Your light shines through

I want to believe this love is true

But still I am afraid

Afraid to fall in love
