Love and Fear

August 8, 2019

They say love is comforting
But I swear it has me scared to death

You tell me you’re stressed
I hear you’re completely fatigued

You tell me you’re hungry
I hear you’ve been starving for days

You tell me you’re cold
I hear you’re stuck in a blizzard

You complain about the heat
And I can feel an inferno

You tell me you’re walking in the rain
I hear you’re braving a hurricane

And damn, when you’re sick
I feel like each breath may be your last

I know I love you because I’m scared
Wishing I could control the elements for you.

I know I love you because I’m scared
Unsure what existing means without you.
