Wake up one morning
And realize that my problems
Are not the result
Of someone else's insecurity
Truth be told
I have a paralyzing fear
Of reaching out to love
Withoutbeing loved in return
My relationships topple,
Crumble and fall
Half the time before
They even begin
I like a boy
Yes I like a boy
And I have no clue
If he likes me back
I fear I am crazy
Too young
Too interested
Too bright for his taste
I remember a time
I thought we were perfect
Five minutes of pleasure
A week of tears
I am wary,
I am guarded
Oh so very cautious
I cannot let go
I hope, I dream
I long to be held
In the arms of a boy
Who loves me back
