Fears of Love

by LadyPearl

Love is the base of every heart
Love is light in many days
Yet why do I still fall apart
And feel that love is dismay

I've seen so much hope and joy
in the eyes of those around
What is that feeling by a boy
that makes a girl wanna drown

Yet something holds me back
a fear inside my heart
A thing that I have lacked
Through all my strange thoughts

Thoughts of tears on my face
and a broken heart to match
So I guard my heart in case
The disease of pain I catch

I hide my feelings inside
So my heart won't be hurt
But even from what I hide
Some lust in me still lurks
