The Last Of The Breed



  And when the door opened
  It only revealed an empty room.
  A public house :
  I was to understand and wait.
  Instead I left a note hanging on her door :
  “I came to die in your arms.

  — Karam Monoranjan (Lovers and Strangers, 1979)

this resonates too well and that scares me.

Love itself is scary.
To be in love is to be scared, every moment of everyday.
And thats the beauty of it.
