Poetry is the soundtrack to my life, the lyrics are my thoughts accompanied by the melody of my emotions.

The fear of failing
not yourself but the people who
hold your soul in their hands
the filter, the anchor
it’s not irrational
it’s the people who see
past the scars on my wrist,
past the trophies on the shelf,
into my broken heart

you’re the reason
I lie to my therapist
and smile at the critics
guilty for the difference between
who you are to me
and what I give back to you

but you hold me between
the end of my rope and

letting go

we speak in hushed voices so as to not wake our memories

I understand what you're trying to say because it's my situation right now. Love your work! :)
