I fear you

I am so fragile in your hands,

A shaking mass of insecurities and love,

bundled together with raw nerve endings.

I am terrified, I fear my love for you, it is a rising tide,

breaking against the harbour of my soul.

Please, be gentle with me, I am afraid

and can be so easily shattered,

you’d only need to flex your fingers

and I would be crushed into glittering dust,

and used as your warpaint.
