him

It was evident that day
The fire in your eyes
As I walked up the stairs
With my mask securely fastened

I had to keep reminding myself
It was only the second time
But I wanted to say so much
Let my thoughts spill out my mouth

I didn’t want to scare you
With my emotions and my secrets
Make you think
I had any sort of expectations

But honestly
I only held back
Because in fact
I was scared

Of
Rejection
Judgement
Never being enough

I don’t know what I’d rather
Face the firing line
Or keep your fire smouldering
And risk the burn
