A fear. Losing what you do not want to lose.

Used to write to make a rhyme

Senseless writings with no meaning

Then I learned I can do with out

Organize my thoughts with words I’ve saved

Seems to end up rhyming excellently

 

It took so little to express myself here

Took so much to express myself to you

I’m to blame

 

It takes twenty minutes to write

For what seems like an eternity to discover 

 

From words planned on a napkin

To text delicately placed into type

Evidence enough to show

Something beautiful can stem from nothing

 

I gathered I’d walk away hurt

Never thinking I’d experience it as ups and downs throughout

Questioning myself and my actions to their entirety

But never to their sincerity

 

This experience with you was substantial

Assume it could help with another

But I wanted it to help with you

Doubting their could be another

 

Afraid to walk away

Knowing you’ll catch me glimpsing back

Buckling at the knees

Quivering at the heart

I’m afraid
