Nothing to lose


Fear sealed my lips
though I was unsure
of what held me back
My heart sang
a solitary tune
though I wanted yours
to strike a duet

Words paralysed by
my fear of rejection
remained unsaid
Then the moment was gone
the chance lost

Now I look back
with eyes made wise
by time, and I know
I shouldn’t have let fear
tie my tongue in knots

I had nothing to lose
but you
