I can’t control the thoughts inside my head
and my paranoia is making me toss and turn in my bed.
I have awful dreams of how I lose you time and time again to someone new.
Just the thought of losing you constantly leaves me blue.
The more I try to keep the thoughts at bay,
the fewer demons I seem to slay.
My fear has become my secret shame.
Fear of never hearing your sweet voice,
of being devoured by silent noise.
Fear of never seeing your perfect silhouette,
and living forevermore in a stormy upset.
In secret, my mind fabricates how our lives can become untwined,
and my constant terror; is losing what I once thought, would be forever.

Ah how bittersweet and poignant. Of course that fear is the only thing that could dive them away…

Good point of view. But think about it, now a days is one’s fear of losing someone the only reason to be driven away. If someone loves you wouldn’t they fight to remove your fear?
