I really like that phrase midway through the poem--"cringing at my saccharine naivety." I had some questions about comma usage: for example, I thought the one in the second line should either be taken out, or another one should be added at the very end. I also felt you could slash out that second "read," as it would make the poem read more fluidly. Those are just minor things. In general I enjoy entertaining the idea of fear hindering love, but felt that its execution in this piece could be more original, more moving. You've got a great start with "saccharine naivety"; I think some more refreshing language like would that would help this poem become more powerful.
