I'll Never Know

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Fear, oh wretched fear,

evil and deceitful,

I shall not listen!

 

With a cast of confidence,

a burst of bravery,

"Your love will shine,

if you be mine."

 

My shoulders once strong,

now dead and useless

 

Fear, oh wretched fear,

evil and deceitful,

I am not listening

 

With a hint of hormone,

a dash of daiquiri,

"Stare closely into my eyes,

do not part till the world dies."

 

My shoulders once strong,

now twice dead and useless.

 

Fear, oh wretched fear,

evil and deceitful,

I am listening.

 

Such suffocating embarrassment,

each time a new stone thrown.

Stones cast out twice

and possibly thrice.

 

I've lost all hope,

but I'll give it a go!

 

Mind melting, heart hurting,

butterflies battering, lips nothing.

She could be the one, I'll never know.

 

Fear, oh wretched fear,

evil and deceitful,

how do I overcome thee?
