Fearless

At the end of my list
my wish for who
I wanted in my life
I wanted to be
there was a hole
a blank spot for
one more word, I
didn’t know what
but just let it go
thinking it didn’t matter
that empty space.
I filled it today with
Fearless.

I need fearlessness.
Not afraid of intensity
or afraid of how
we look together or
what others might say
or afraid of getting hurt
years down the road
or afraid of being
my equal, my partner,
or afraid to talk to me
and show me his true feelings
and trust that I will
love him and want to work
to help him, not hurt him
or afraid of revealing
how brightly he can shine.

Fearless,
so he won’t run
away from me.
