He’s Yours, What Are You so Afraid of? (Poem #29)

I am afraid that limits will be crossed
I am afraid that when I ask who will be his choice
coins will still have to be tossed

I am afraid that she’ll no longer be simply a threat
I am afraid that she’ll take over
that I’d be put on a shelf
because I wasn’t competent enough
and he had to choose who to love

I am afraid of how far she’s gonna get
and that the blame would always be on me
because while I was holding his heart,
I was letting her touch it.

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
