Fearful of taking the leap; Fleeing an alleged stability Wonder struck – can my devotion be so deep? Resigned to a prevention of ability Escape this captured state? Scared of rejection Cowering from the pain you may aggravate Not understanding the complexion Perchance I have been conditioned To accept and commit; Wronged into position Ashamed at wanting to quit I’ve taken the easy option Remaining on a rocking vessel Preceding with caution Emotions all a wrestle He blows hot and cold Insulting words then beautiful flowers; I know it’s wrong to be controlled But charm empowers I’m a ship aground; A story untold A pulling tide restrained to the sand A flower unable to unfold I’m a boat marooned; You’re young and yet to settle You’ve chosen a rose that cannot bloom - a bird entangled in nettles

Thank you so much Robert. It really helps me to get comments as I've always love poetry but never had much feedback sending to my friends. This poem took me 10 minutes to write such was my feeling.
