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.
