Not Scared

I’m not scared by the shadows of the night,
I’m scared of your enchanting dark brown eyes.
I’m not scared of the thunder and the lightning,
I’m scared of the noise of steps that bring you closer.

I’m not scared of the powerful current of the river,
I’m scared that my body trembles when you touch me.
I’m not scared of how the fire fiercely burns its path,
I’m scared of the burning desire you have left in me.

I am not scared of the silence that is loneliness,
But I’m scared that the silence means you are gone.
I am not scared that most people do not love me,
I’m just sad because I know, I’ll never be loved by you.
