Fears

Write a poem using someone else’s biggest fear as the title

Commitment

 

Unable to look beyond the fear

That I could never let someone else in —

Fully.

Completely.

As if staring into another’s eyes can be

Interrupted.

Unable to hold a gaze.

 

And I ask myself why —

Am I afraid of letting someone else see me?

Completely.

Am I afraid of allowing myself to

Open up to another?

To Trust someone?

Unconditionally.

 

How can I if I can’t take the time

To hold another’s gaze?

We all sometimes feel —

Awkward.

Alone.

It’s enough to allow the feeling to stop

The need to feel —

Together.

Whole.
