afraid

Memories

It sits in the back of my mind,
It creeps downs my back, it slides down my spine.
It poisons my stomach,
It aches in my chest,
It taunts me with things I've tried to forget.
I scream for help, I beg and I plead
But rescue is something I will never receive.

My Gift to You

Folder: 
1st poems

Protected in my hands
Guarded by a sentinel
Inside a hardened cocoon.

I keep it inside a golden chest
A thousand miles under the ocean.

It is there that I keep my biggest treasure
It has felt my sorrow,
In an unfathomable measure.

Shielded by a million walls
Protected from vicious thieves.

I’ve put a lock around it
And thrown the key
It is mine and sacred
For now and perpetually.

Deep inside though,
I know that I’m just afraid
Terrified of more scars and pain
So I’ve slowly disconnected myself.

That’s why I find myself confused today,
I feel different in a way.

You have penetrated my barriers
And destroyed all my obstacles.

When you entered my life
You freed my heart from its metal shackles.

From black and white
To blinding rainbow
You make me see the colors
I had no idea existed.

So here I stand today
And with cherish, to you I say
I hope you never have to go away
Because my heart and I are here to stay.

Afraid to fly

See I don't know how to tell you this
But it's been on my mind
Evan though I wanna say it
It's ganna take some time
See I've never been so happy
And I've never been so scared
Cause now I have to wonder if he really cares
It seemed to easy to be let down
I'm so familiar with the ground
See you gave me wing you made me fly
But this isn't my first time in the sky
Those wings I was once gave
were ripped from me with out a say
Have you ever fallen from the sky
Now you no why I'm afraid to fly
