halfway to eternity

In freewrite, poetry on June 30, 2010 at 10:35 am

I’m afraid of smothering you
like a favorite pet-
afraid of loving you too much.

I’m not afraid of getting hurt
So long as you love me in return
If only for a little while

But I’m afraid of being too fond
Of scaring you off – I always have been
But you’re breaking me of that

Slowly

With the dear peices of the words you say
and the way you look at me
from halfway to eternity
