HESITATING LOVE

Pacing like an animal
in a restricted cage,
trying to control
what has already been inflamed.
Somewhere deep inside you still
is a burning rage.
Bothered by the notion
that someone here is to blame.
You carry all the shame, all of the shame.

So afraid you're hesitating love.
Never are you certain
what exactly its made of.
Turning away from
what it stirred up inside.
Something got awaken
that you thought already died, already died.

Still you had the courage
to take the chance.
You're haunted by a memory
that has put you in this circumstance.
Any slight reverberation
and you're ready to pounce.
Holding to fury, don't give an ounce,
don't give an ounce.

So afraid you're hesitating love.
Never are you certain
what exactly its made of.
Turning away from
what it stirred up inside.
Something got awaken
that you thought already died, already died.
