    The breathless anxiety is making me short of breath
    my pulse races along with furious current
    my midnight is being intruded on by dawns breaking light
    do I welcome it or fear it???
    I'm so accustomed to emotional isolation....
    I don’t know what to make of these feelings..
    obstructing my thoughts with a barrage of questions and uncertainties
    making me want to reach for hope...but suspicious of these strange sensations..
    I cling desperately to my habits of harboring my affections.
    Usually when something seems to good to be true...it is:
    how can I expect something so tried and true to change?
    I could be a pioneer, a trailblazer...and aspire for things to work my way
    but I stand a good chance of being devastated again
    my warmth and compassion is being replaced with darkness and cold
    coldness is good for it’s numbing power....stopping pain....
    And pleasure...
    which is worse...constant worry and uneasiness,
    or eternal loneliness and suppression of passion?
    My mind is clouded with mental aphrodisiacs and intellectual stimulation....
    but am I blinded by my own desires?
    Being toyed with mercilessly...a prisoner to romance...?
    I should barricade my heart against everything
    but I would lose everything I consist of....
    I’m caught in a obscure labyrinth.....

    midnight, i enjoyed this piece, but you need to stop writing in the dark late at night and stop being afraid to be brave. We all get hurt, and we all get past those hurts...the heart breaks and mends, but you cannot be afraid to continue trying. Really nice piece tho.
