Poem: Afraid of Commitment

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Afraid of commitment is a poem about how she feels each moment when she shares it with him. She desires him and wants him to be part of her life, but the feeling scares the socks off her feet. She fears being hurt by love and drowning in her tears.

Afraid of Commitment

Her passion reaches out touching the fruit

dangling in front of her eyes,

feeling warm in his embrace

desiring his path to merge with hers.


Her heart feels happy

wanting him each day,

but loving him scares the socks

right off her feet,

for she fears falling off a high cliff

with no branch to rescue her,

drowning in a sea of tears.

Rosina,

The fear is normal but it's not easy to take that leap of faith.

I hope today is treating you well.

Fear of commitment in a relationship is normal. We all experience it and get by it. I am sure she will soon learn to embrace it and get over with it. Best of luck!

Some people fear commitment so much that they miss out on some of the best things that life has to offer.

Insecurity is a big one for many! We are all so fragile! Nicely expressed.
