Expression of Love

To express my love, I was afraid  
Their judgment hung over my head  
To dismiss it all is what they said  
It is nothing but a child's game 
Have fun, but encrust thy heart in lead  
And keep playing with no aim 
Thus, from shouting these feelings I have refrained  
But it is time for me to take the reins  
I must express the present truth, my love 
Or a coward remain.
