Afraid: by Jhillika Panchal

It should not have been this day of the year,
When all unwanted turn into fear. 

Well, I’m just a bit afraid,
Since my life recently, has been too great. 

I know I’m not broken in as yet,
And you’re still along I’d bet. 

But, nights haunt when it turns into fear from rage,
I hope we’re on the same page. 

I shouldn’t be afraid,
Inspite, of it engulfing me off late. 

I believe you’d stay the same,
Till I’d steal your last name. 

I am still too afraid,
Seeing my life so great. 

You being away gets me off guard,
I’ve been trying to fake-smile so hard. 

There was no other way to let you know,
So I tried to give this a go. 

To say that I’m afraid to realise,
Although our fate away did God finalise. 

We’ve turned it true from a dream,
Our life’s too good to be real. 

The thought’s getting me off the rail.
Yes! It’s getting me too afraid.
