i admit

I admit,
I was afraid
to love.
Not just love,
but to love her.
For she was a stunning
mystery.
She carried things
deep inside her
that no one
has yet to understand,
and I,
I was afraid to fail,
like the others.
She was the ocean
and I was just a boy
who loved the waves
but was completely
terrified to
swim.
