We are not afraid of the dark,
But we are afraid of what's in it.
We are not afraid of heights, either.
But we are afraid of falling to our death.
So in the exact same sense, you are not afraid of love,
You are afraid of the rejection.
The possibility of being heartbroken again,
the fear of getting laughed at by everyone again.
You think to yourself, there is no need
To feel that type of pain again,
So you try your very hardest not to.
Really, you are not scared of trying again,
you are-for the most part afraid of the pain
of getting hurt for the exact same reason as before.
So you throw away the ambition, the hope
for what could've been, and you close your eyes,
telling yourself to forget it all.....
