I Fear Love!

I fear love;
I am paranoid of that
tingling feeling in my gut.
the kisses of love, consume me;
they eat away my existence
scratching the walls of my heart
which has already dried up. 
the soft touches of
my lover's coarse fingertips
burn my skin which once felt like
warm sunlight.

I have always been hungry
for long hugs, a pair of arms
who can embrace my heart,
promising it peace and a forever
but all I got ever were cages
and clench of longing.
all I dreamt of was feather-like love
that sweeps me off reality,
and takes me to a land of fantasy,
where the sun rises in hues of
romance and evening arrives with
a sweet sensual aura. However, 
what my days with love
have taught me is that,
love is like cotton, lightweight
when fresh and new, 
but once it gets drenched with the tears
of separation, it becomes too heavy
for a fragile heart to handle.
now, I am avoiding a heartbreak 
as much as I was chasing love once. 
I fear love ;
