The fear of Love.







I look around at the human sea

I ask, what have we become

Where is the love that used to be?

It marches now to a different drum.


We dare not smile or cast an eye

Or nod in greeting to another

Eyes downcast arms held to our sides

Hide our feelings from our Lovers.


We live our lives in abject fear

Lest a smile or nod be mistaken

We cannot show that we really care

Friendship is gone all but forsaken.


We turn our heads as we hurry by

Ignore the lonely and the lost

A passing thought, we nod and sigh.

We do not stop to count the cost.


That gentle touch, a warming smile.

Now lost in meanings sensual

Affection is hidden, seen as guile

And a hug is seen as being unusual.


How you long to feel their touch.

To share your love without condition

Friendshipís hug you miss so much

Is lost for fear of violation.


Maybe one day, I donít know when

The fears that drive us all apart

Will be cast aside and maybe then

A love that is natural will rule our hearts.

Nice write Robin. You hit the nail on the head with this one. Human nature is a curious thing and it is magnified when love is thrown into the mix !!

We are on the same page with this. This is the theme of my latest work. I think you said it better... I'll place mine aside for a while. Enjoyed.
