Confusion - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

Your confusion
It drains the light in me
Do you care
Do you see?
Makes me feel uncertain of myself
My ability to make you happy
Your mind a maze of doubts
feeding its negativity to my soul
Darkening my world like coal
Your mind a tempest of desire
My life balancing on a high wire
making me reel from vertigo
The answers I just do not hold
My heart racing in anxiety
with the shock of what you mean to me
A girl who does not have a clue
on how to show you
she loves you
