“Doubts and Fears” (an orange sonnet)

To be with you for the rest of my life

is my sweetest dream; yet my greatest fright.

I’m afraid you’d be gone when I tear off my mask.

I hope, through time, our love won’t last.

I want us to stay, but the skies spread in full gray;

I love you, still Time drives you away.

It’s such a shame to long for your embrace –

When I doubt I could give you my eternal grace.

Words left unsaid; actions left undone –

I should’ve kissed you underneath the sun.

If love conquers fear, then why can’t I show,

That I’m not going to let you go?

Amidst all the fears, take hold of my heart,

‘coz how great love is, when every Thomas falls apart.
