An All Too Well Known Pain

Anger

Bottled Up

Do Not Cry

Do You Know Me

Missing You

What Am I

Without You

YOU ARE

Forbidden Pleasures

An All Too Well Known Pain

Fear and trepidation encompass my heart
As I begin to feel this unforgettable sensation
The rapacious desire to draw you nearer
And the dreadful longing when you are gone
The more I think of what is happening to me
The more frightened I become
I have felt the unbearable anguish
Caused by this emotion before
The mere thought of which
Brings tears to my eyes
My injured heart is not strong enough
To withstand this pain once more
Yet this sensation persists
I can feel it growing each day
And with it grows my apprehension
I am so afraid of being hurt again
You have no conception of how much
My heart has suffered and endured
And I honestly hope that you will
Never know this torture
I vow were you to grant me your love
By no means would it be harmed
But I am uncertain that this
Would be the same for me
I know not what is in your heart
And the threat of being hurt
Causes my soul to tremble
I so deeply wish to love you
But I cannot unless your love
Is ready to be given in return
Please donít let my heart be
Wounded once more
Please donít hurt me.
