Afraid of Doubt


I'm doubting—

Doubting everything possible

And now I need you still;

But I'm afraid to let it show.


I'm hurting—

Hurting in every feasible way

I want it to disappear—disappear;

But how do I undo hurt?


I'm confused—

Confused beyond logical reasoning

And now I need explanations

But I'm terrified of asking.


Why can I not tell what I mean to you?

I keep second guessing—so insecure;

Afraid of sorrow but desperate to know

The answer to questions in my heart;


Do you think of me the same way

That I think of you everyday?

Do you love me unconditionally

As I've loved you for so long?


I want to ask—but I'm afraid

Because I'm doubting;
