Scared of the light

Scared of the moon

Stay in the dark

Stay in my room

Scared of my house

Scared of outside

Can't talk right now

I have to go hide

Scared of black

Scared of white

Scared of the day

Scared of the night

Scared of myself

I'm so scared of you

I'm scared to be here

Yet too scared to move

Leave me alone

Wait, please don't go

I might just freak out

Might lose all control

Scared of the drugs

I take to get by

Scared if I don't

I may not survive

Too scared to live

Too scared to die

Scared to get better

Too scared to try..

    I really enjoy the speed and intensity of this poem, and the rawness of laying out all of your fears for the world to see. I still have my own fears, and I can really empathize with the voice you display in this particular poem.

  • A former member wrote: This is the 2nd poem I have reviewed by you, thought I have read many. But I have to say, that I would be hard pressed to find another person I have read, that sums up her fears so openly, and honestly. I have never met you, but I feel your frustration,
