Will I die alone, my love?

Will I die alone, my love?

No one wants to die alone, my love. 
Hold my hand 
Through sickness and through health.
But you are just a phantom
In my frightened mind.
My imperfection holds me back
From making you a reality.
I’ve watched too many relationships
Plummet and burn.
I’m afraid I won’t be able do even one thing right,
The most important thing of all,
Keeping the one I love happy enough to stay.

    I think this is a fear a lot of us have- I know I personally struggle a lot with trusting new people in my life and opening myself up. It’s scary to be that vulnerable around someone and to let someone in. Really great poem!
