Take My Hands

I reach for you in the dark

Finger tips brushing

I reach but yet I’m flinching away.

Uncertainty poisoning my brain.

The door to my mind is jammed

Too afraid to let you in.

Can you see the state I’m in.

I’m uncertain,

What if you hurt me?

After knowing me, seeing every bit of me

What if you’ll leave?

If I let you in

I lose control of being the person you think I am.

Who am I?

Will you like who I am?

The person I hide?

My uncertainty is choking me.

It has me by the neck

Holding me back from accepting your open hand.
