im afraid

im the most fearful person I know

i know that

i wear pride as my crown

and keep my chin held high

but i choke on the rising waves

of disappointment

sadness

and terror

i shield myself with distance

but my heart yearns for what i know could break me

for good

One thought on “im afraid
