Why Am I So Afraid?

I wish I didn't have to live a lie everyday of my life.

I'm so scared what might happen if it's exposed.

Help me figure out what I need to do.

Help me find the strength to do what's right.

I'm so scared that I will lose everything.

I'm so scared that I'm going to make them mad.

This is too much stress for one person.

And I'm going through it a lone.

If I tell, then everything will blow up like it did in the past.

I need someone to talk to.

My heart is constantly racing.

My breathing is getting shallow.

I walk around in a trance more than I should.

But I can't help how I feel.

All these lies.

All these secretes.

They are draining the life out of me.

Pretty soon there won't be anything left.

Please help me.

Poem of the Day


Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
