Angst, Anxiety, Despair

What are you afraid of?

I'm afraid of falling from a great height. Not just physically but with my heart. I'm afraid that I'm going to go all in and find out that I can't swim and I will drown in you. I'm afraid that I'll study all of the facts about you and fail the exam. I'm afraid of the depths in your eyes because I've never dived that deep. I'm afraid of fucking this up and loosing what I have.

Is that all?

I'm afraid of finally finding a perfect fit. I'm afraid of the fire that could smolder for the rest of time. I'm afraid of that house on the hill that holds fulfilled hopes and dreams. I'm afraid of coming through the hardships stronger than before. I'm afraid of happiness forever. I'm afraid of succeeding in you.
