I'm scared to love someone.
I'm scared of what might happen.
I don't want to let someone in,
Because I don't know what might happen.
I'm afraid, and I shouldn't be.
I shouldn't be afraid of something
Like this, but I am.
I know what love is,
I have seen it,
And I have felt it,
But I'm still scared.
Maybe I'm scared
Because of what happened last time.
It didn't work out,
And it didn't turn out that great.
I was miserable,
Because I didn't know
What I was supposed to do.
I didn't know how to love someone,
Maybe because I didn't know
How to love myself.
