I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before*



I am afraid of who you have been

I am afraid of letting myself go back

Afraid that not letting go keeps me there

Afraid that I have to stop loving you

Or else be forever tied to abuse

I am afraid of everything that can slip in if I leave your door open

Almost as much as I am afraid that it will lock if I close it



Author's Notes/Comments: 

I am standing at a fork in a road, paralyzed with fear, unable to do anything but gaze at both paths before me and know that I cannot turn around and go home. *After the Storm - Mumford and Sons
