Write a poem using someone else’s biggest fear as the title
Unable to look beyond the fear
That I could never let someone else in —
As if staring into another’s eyes can be
Unable to hold a gaze.

To Trust someone?
How can I if I can’t take the time
To hold another’s gaze?

It’s enough to allow the feeling to stop
The need to feel —
