i look at you

why do i sit here
all scared and stuff 
if you asked
me why?  i'd say
i don't know

is this the quiet
before the storm?
if it is, lets get on
with it because 
i don't like it.

i should not be
scared of anything
after what i have
gone thru these 
half-passed of 
lately.

darling, help me
to understand
how you can be
so loyal when i
am so unloveable

i want to be very,
beautiful for you.

please, please make
everything alright and
do all the things that
you do to make me
SIMMER DOWN.

so, now i do lay
me down to sleep
and i keep creeping
closer to you all night
as you sleep as if
you haven't 

a care in the world

and i just worry.



to my beloved, janetta

    I like the human move tagging the concerns that make us worry ... nice flow and a balanced sense of timing. Bravo.

    I've always been a worrier too, especially when it comes to love. Somehow just never believed his feelings were true due to past experiences. Time will turn to trust hopefully, and the freedom to love fully without fear will be glorious. Good luck. Love, Shar
