It Scares Me

It Scares Me

A Poem by Frankie Nguyen

It scares me to want you

It scares me to think what could be

The whole thing terrifies me

When I try to pull away

You pull me closer

And make me fall for you more


You’re the only one

Who’s looked at me and seen beauty

Who’s wanted me

My past and all


You’re the only one

Who’s protected me

Who’s cared for my safety

Who’s cared for me


You’re the only one

Who’s shown me that I can love

Who’s shown me that it might just be possible

And that scares me


To be vulnerable again

To give you the power to hurt me


But I don’t want to be anywhere else

But by your side

Wrapped in your arms

Kissing you

Loving you

And it scares me to think

That I’m in love with you
