Fearless

Because I was fearless,
I opened myself up.
Because I was fearless,
I found out who I am.
Because I was fearless,
I took steps I wouldn’t have taken.
Because I was fearless,
I will never be the same.
And because I was fearless,
The word on my tongue is his name.

Because I was fearless,
I fell in love without realizing.
Because I was fearless,
I allowed myself to trust.
Because I was fearless,
I did dumb exhilarating things.
Because I was fearless,
I knew I’d be okay with him here.
And because I was fearless,
I didn’t think I’d have to fear…

Now there is a fear to cry.
A fear of sobbing everything
away into my pillows.
Even though I couldn’t ever
bring myself to do so.
A fear that I’ll never
find anyone I will
love the same way.
A fear that overcoming
all this will be impossible.
