Into The Deep


I stood in shadow
While you glared into my darkness
I cowered from the light
As you lit the flames of hope

And it was in that fleeting moment
That I realized
I had to let go
So, I wouldn't drag you into the deep

The Courageous ones

I refused an opportunity of a relationship with someone who saw and challenged my "darkness". 

I did it because I felt they were too good for me in a way and that I wouldn't want to ruin them although I had probably needed them at that time. Love this short poem. 

Thank you for sharing.

Sometimes it's safer

To not share the pain.
And sometimes it's selfish
To give in knowing the dark inside I waiting to arise
Courage... I never looked at it that way. I always thought I was just playing it safe.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
