No Risk, No Love

Woke up shivering,
Wild thoughts attack
holding the brain captive,
Heart pounds,
Fear attaches its claws
to the depths of the soul.

“What if he chooses her over me?”
What if I am not enough?”
“What if she forgets?”
“What if the heart betrays?”
“What if she takes my place?”
“What if she hurts me again?”
” What if?”
“Just what if?”

Maybe it’s madness.
Maybe it’s paranoia.
Maybe it’s stupidity
Or a stamp of distrust.
Maybe it’s lack of confidence.
Maybe it’s the truth.
Maybe it’s just the heart
Wanting to protect itself from pain.

Just maybe,
But hear me,
No risk, no love.
Drown the voice but do listen carefully…

Why not share?
