poll results

why
it frightens
turns off the lights
exposing my darkness
and its unbreathable smell

when
back then
in a decade
as we speak
5 minutes ago

what
this feeling of insufficiency
my bleeding out insecurity
and that fervor to get it right
at no time believing i might

how
head held underwater
after the happy dive
i can't come out for air
i can't come out alive

if i reach for your hands
we will both drown

please
forgive me

feeling insufficient will drown you..but an offered hand is offered for a reason..and doesn't mean both will drown..as long as both have will

A multiple choice poem - mix and match?
I choose "If I reach for your hands" "after the happy dive"

That is very well written!if you are offered a hand,take it.Hope is a wonderful thing.It helps you only if you have it
