Trying to Break Through (poem)

Beneath the surface
Of my feigned disinterest
A lioness hides
Afraid to let him know
That I am here
Afraid to let him know
How much I care
Afraid to let others
See how I feel
Afraid that I might
Totally lose control
Afraid that I will fall
And not be caught
Afraid that he will not
And I will be a fool
Afraid to believe
What I've seen in his eyes
And heard from his lips
And read in his words
