My fears by Erinayo (Mifewrites) Olagunju


My fears finally came true

Maybe I should blame myself for not believing in you

Or to blame my heart for falling too soon

I am short of words

Having no idea how to express my thoughts

You were my own kind of inspiration

Yet still the source of my confusion 

You heightened my happy mood

Making me forget where I stood

Then you left me confused

Not knowing why I was fighting my muse

My one in a million motivation

Because the reason my heart went in probation

I am more than being exhausted

Cause you made me forget why I believed feelings existed

Maybe my fears should stay

So I can proudly say I dealt with my pain
