    Scared to write
    afraid of what
    might spill out.
    Could be freeing, but
    could be mortifying.
    Might just put my foot in
    better just stop typing
    before I begin
    to feel exactly the
    same emotions that got
    me into this fix to
    begin with. It is not
    easy to rethink and
    question every line
    especially with
    feelings like mine
    easy hurt, heart
    on my sleeve
    want to express it,
    but can't, hard to believe
    it has come to this,
    but it has. I just can't write,
    don't want to feel,
    try as I might
    I just can't deal
    with these feelings
    they're just too real,
    they're just too deep.

    Yes, Rich...sometimes a little too much self is in the expression, but such is the life of a poet. Thanks for responding.

    most welcome as poet's always fine the path
    to express the inner emotions & feelings
    to the minds and be felt within as it drip to canvas

    Sister...I completely feel you
    sometimes I'm afraid to
    of what reflection I might
    see in the words on the page...
    Feeling this deeply..
    Love the flow!

    Thank you angelicsage for letting me know you feel me on this. As poets, we can work around this I guess...

    Poetry is new to me. It gives me a place to let out all my emotions, and things I cannot discuss with anyone else. I see you have written a lot of poems. So just continue to write and release, then when you gotten all those emotions out you can share them with us if you like. But just don't keep them in because they will manifest themselves in some way. Might as well be a postive way.

    Yes, cojamalik feelings do come out one way or another, and a positive way is better. Since I first wrote this, I have mangaed to write about some of the feelings, though not all. Thanks for responding.

    Thank you phenomenal for such a nice compliment. And what you write truly works for the reader as well.
