What Are You So Afraid of? (Poem #133)

She said,
“I am afraid that I can’t love you enough.

I’m afraid that I can’t break the walls around myself
and instead of offering any help,

you end up giving up.

I’m afraid you’ll walk away,

blaming me for how hardly we fell out
because there’s too many things that I lack.

I’m afraid you’ll get fed up and realize

that while you were so busy trying to win me

you failed to see all the flaws and all the scars.

I’m afraid that when I finally decide to submit myself entirely

you’ll change your mind
and decide that your hardwork never really paid off

because I am hollow, there’s nothing you could have

there’s not much in me to love.”

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.
