Fears

Today, I wanted to die with you
but I didn’t, because I was fearful.

Yesterday, I wanted to comfort you
but I didn’t, because I was ineloquent; tis’ true.

The day before, I wanted to sob with you
but I didn’t, because I was unconfident; tis’ true.

Last week, I wanted to fill your need
but I didn’t, because I was inadequate; tis’ true.

Last month, I wanted to want you
but I didn’t, because my own heart it would break; tis’ true.

Last year, I wanted to know you
but I didn’t, because I dared not peirce the walls.

On the third, I wanted to see you
On the second, I wanted to hear you
On the first, I wanted to touch you
And
In the beginning
I wanted to live with you;
Yesterday I was afraid, today
I live with you.
