Afraid of one another

Our hearts are sickened

by the fear of one another

we cannot feel anymore

this deep love

as an anguished fire

reddens our chests

When I have such sensations

I feel you’re going to betray me the next moment

and ruin my life

I feel in great danger

and I feel you are my greatest enemy

And this is probably what you feel too

when my words force you to plunge

deep within you where pain is so sharp

you start to hate me

But my dear

what nonsense is this

why can’t we trust one another again

and let go of this burning wound of the past

why can’t we embrace without turmoil

why not to turn the page

and start writing

a new story
