Afraid

I am afraid.
I am afraid to love.
I am afraid to love because when I love I give everything I've got,
and most of the time my heart ends up becoming bruised and battered.
But wait,
What's this?
Who's he?
Why am I no longer surrounded by the darkness that used to consume me? 
I am no longer afraid.
I'm not sure how,
But the chain link fence that was wrapped tightly around my heart has been torn down.
I am shocked,
yet in some way,
He made me,
No
Longer
Afraid.
