I’m scared that I won’t know how to talk to you because I don’t.
I’m scared that you’ll leave because I’ve never kept a friend very long.
I’m scared that I don’t know how to be a friend because I haven’t had many.
I’m scared that I’m too much or too little because I can’t tell the difference.
I’m scared about how I feel because loving so much can lead to more hurt later.
I’m scared because I’ve never done this before.
I’m scared because I’m not good at reading signals.
I’m scared because I’m getting better, which makes it harder to handle if I mess up.
I’m scared because I don’t think you know how scared I am or how much I try.
But most of all, I’m scared because friendship means so much to me and I don’t know if or when I’ll get another chance.
