Twisted with thoughts

Alone with fear

Confused by words

Hurt by silence


Fuzzy like the black and white films from the past;

Hazed like cloudy December days.


Warm butterflies, soft heart, comforting arms

Jealous feelings, sharp stabs, unexpected twists


The inconsistency, the tormenting, the daunting ideas,

The compassion, the hope,

The dream that this may last forever


Fear holds us back, holds us from that feeling.

Fear embodies the brain and empowers it.

Fear of rejection, fear of love, fear of dishonesty, fear of trust

But, if you don’t try something you fear, how will you ever know?


It is powerful and weak,

It is scary and beautiful

We may be lost with it,

But really we are lost without it.
