To The One I’m Scared To Love


When I distance myself from you
I want you to inch in closer
Because that’s when
I need you the most

When I throw up those walls without warning
I want you to tear them down
Brick by brick
And hold me till
I break down in your arms

When I’m unable to keep pace
I want you to hold me by the hand
And pull me along
Because I want to be with you

When fear takes over
Of you hurting me too
I need your kindness and gentle touch
Because I want to trust again

When my heart goes cold
From numbness and indifference
I need your warmth more than ever
Because I know it’s only you
Who can thaw it back to life

When my steps retreat
I am looking for reasons to move forward
Towards you
Without fear
Because you are my last hope. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
