Afraid Again


Hating this feeling, what's this mean?
My chest hurts, I can't breathe
My eyes burn, tears stain my face
My hands shake, can't seem to stop.

Walking down the hall, avoiding eye contact
Don't touch me, don't come closer
Suddenly afraid and not knowing why
As a group of guys come my way.

'This is ridiculous' I tell myself
'Their just guys, ' so why am I so afraid?
I get no answer, just silence
As I edge closer to the wall.

Images fill my mind as I walk
Of my past, I thought I forgot
Told myself I exaggerated
The pain I felt then.

People tell me I exaggerated what happened
That it never was that bad
If that's true then why am I so afraid
Of being hurt, of letting anyone close to me?

    a lovely poem full of emotion and true feeling. Well done Karley. Sometimes I think writing poetry at its best is for dissipating strong feeling into the Universe. (Report) Reply

    unhappy experiences in the past do tend to mar our present, but with time I am sure you would be okay... (Report) Reply

    It's a very complex-minded poem! ! ! there is a essence of contradiction about the poem but yet your poetry is direct and strong! ! (Report) Reply

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
