More Truth Unknown

-I'm Afraid-

Through my head, thoughts of us are born

and with each thought, my heart gets torn.

In my head is a maze that I travel about

and no matter what where I go, there's no way out.

I love you as a friend, and I love you as more,

but I'm afraid to walk through the door.

I'm too scared to take a chance

to find out if this is real romance.

I know I'm ready and enough mature,

but when the time comes I'm scared and insecure.

I can't stand the thought of rejection

So, I search for shelter and protection.

I'm afraid to make the next move

and show my love to prove

and I don't know the next move to make

because I fear my heart will break.

I'm afraid to take the next step

because of the position in which I'll be kept.

I'm afraid to be nothing more than just a friend

from now until forever and even past the end.

Being your friend, I do not mind,

but it is your love that I wish to find.
