I Write - Poem by Cristof Badson

I write to hide my heart
And the feelings that it holds
Whether to hide the anxiety of each day
Or the affection I can never show
I wish to be bold and blunt but that I can never be
As my fears control my life
Stopping me from being who I wish to be
With every action comes a reaction
And with no action comes regret
Regret which cannot be forgotten but only hidden,
So I write to hide my heart in hopes that I forget

My heart keeps not only love
But hatred underneath
Patiently waiting, biding its time
For only when I am my weakest
It seems to have reached its peak
No longer waiting, nor building strength
It decides it's time to rear its head
Embracing all my doubt clouding my mind
Making every judgment seem like the punishment befitting a crime
With no jury nor judge but a lonely executioner
Hell bent on destroying me
With nowhere left to turn
I place my heart on paper
hoping to subdue the beast
