Fear Is All You See
Author: Leah


Held Hostage
In my room
By a crippling fear
It overpowers my actions
And stains my face with tears
No matter how much make up I apply
My tears wash it off
No one understands how I feel
Im stuck between reality and a bad dream
Why cant you understand
This really isint me
Your harsh words
Pierce my soul
Like a sword
Leaving evidence of doubt and confusion
Is this all an illusion?
No its how I feel
Its unreal
You don't understand
My heart is in the right place
But I'm suffering with fear
And that is all you see
You do not see me
"Never have kids"
youve told me time and time again
You say this why?
Because you wish you never had me
Fear is all you see....
