To not be

I want you to be mine

      & I want to be yours


Is it wrong that I am afriad to open this mind?


Imagination takes control & shows me untold horrors


These horrors are not me,

   I want to dismiss their energies


Yet this fear holds onto me like your hands around my neck,

but unlike, it doesn't allow for breath.


I look into your hazel-green eyes

  I want to dive into them,

    free of all worry


Yet this fear keeps my mouth closed and my insecurities inside.


Unable to pry off it's grasp,

      allowance for the deadly silence to sink in.


Why do I let it in?

Why can't I beat this demon off of me?


I just want to see you and I want to be seen.
