fear

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

fear holds me down
an invisible chain
holding me to the ground.
casting a dark shadow
blinds me to the light ahead.

i have created a monster
from the depths of my mind
i've given it a name.
it shouts and screams
feeding on my insecurities.
becoming stronger
as i give in,
day by day...

i sit back,
step outside of myself.
watching the whole process,
i then wonder what it is,
without its name,
and the image i have created.
