Fear is cold, dark, and safe. It's always there, always stays. It hides when it isn't bold. But still remains truth be told. It whispers soft before it yells. It speaks in secrets it always tells. It holds my tongue from giving thoughts. It ruins lives that can't be bought.
Yet love can bring light to dark. It can find the kindling with a spark. It starts to smolder in childish ways, Then catches fire and burns bright as day. It shines right through with radiance. It shows me to the second chance. It fills my chest like a well lit room. It stamps the letter and seals my doom.
Love and fear sometimes coexist. The answer is found in who wins. My silence before came as a fearful fool, It's broken now, because 'I love you.'
