Love Again

I hate to admit-
That I don't stand a chance
All risks turn into rifts-
Our hands will become too...distant
-
I crumbled inside every time I tried-
I couldn't look you in the eyes

A reflection was all I saw-
The beast within me whose heart was still raw

I'm afraid that trust is a one-way street with me
You can only depend on your own
For I have deemed myself unworthy
While I cling onto the tombstones of massacred hopes

I've abandoned the part of my soul
That connected to others
I was forced to let that side of me go
So never again would I fully mourn for another

A sphere of tears-
Floods my sockets with fear

Knowing that-
Every possible future will mimic the past
-
I've stayed awake-
Inside the eternal moments that I've created
And my immortal regret-
Is that I don't know if I can ever fall in love...again
I've lost what mattered most
So don't waste the promises you hold

Why are poems on the dA frontpage always this kind of talentless teen angst?

To berate and demean someone who is exposing their inner life like this is incredibly offensive. Art appreciation is subjective and one might add that the ability to appreciate it also heavily relies on the beholder's capacity. The quality of the work aside, your callous comment is undignified and does not belong in a place of open-minded art appreciation, regardless of your personal opinion. Lowly behaviour, to say the very least.

I really don't care? I'm afraid that I'm allowed to state my opinion as much as you are allowed to state yours.

Aside this being a human outcry from I've no doubt a painful moment, you used it well.  he first stanza flowed nicely and grabbed me with its eloquence.  particularly going from risk to rift - very elegant.  Most of the words you used were very smooth and kept time well, except for 'socket'.  For some reason, it brought me back to a more solid place.  Fortunately by the last stanza, I was back to the 'one way street'. 

Well done.

But what do you when you love them, but still want to let go out of fear?  ^^;

It depends on what you'll regret the most, and what out-weighs the other.

Will you regret holding onto them for love?
Will you regret letting them go out of fear?

What's the stronger emotion you have for this person, love...or fear?

The answer is never really clear for anyone. Usually the "right" thing to do is follow your instinct.

I'm okay. :)
But at the time of writing this, I was trying to break down that certain barrier that was keeping me from loving a special someone. Long story short, I was able to love him.
Thank you for your sincere concern. I'm glad you enjoyed the poem. <3
