    I find shame in the shadows of love
    can’t meet its glare
    or bare to expose myself without shelter
    it is an emotion too foreign...too unfamiliar
    to claim as my own
    I know not love

    there is no refuge in love
    no looking back
    no safety net to break the fall
    I reach out to feel
    But the face in the mirror taunts me
    tells me I cannot be loved
    so I run from the shadows

    I am uncomfortable in the presence of love
    Cannot bare to be teased
    By its elusive allure
    Convincing even myself
    that love has no place here
    I will not be loved

    if I could just touch you
    if you would only touch me
    kiss my soul, heal my spirit
    lift my eyes to meet your glare
    force my hand
    pushing me over the edge to living
    to loving me
    I will then shout to the world that
    I KNOW LOVE

    these lines speak to me...
    there are times when someone comes into your life
    to do all that you have said in these few lines...

    but all is for naught, if we don't recognize the love inside
    for our selves....

    it takes a lot of faith to love someone unconditionally.
    in time it is that same love...that heals.

    heartfelt sentiments...

    ps...I'm with $Rich$, it's good to see you back
    and read your wordz.

    Agreeing with epiphany here, if one recognizes that these feelings exist and acts upon them, then those wonderful feelings can be shared, erasing that fear. I appreciate your expression poetess, and it's great to be reading you again. :)
