Along with my love of writing fiction I also enjoy writing poetry and have done so for quite a long time. So I feel it would be a good way to get to know me and my writing style by posting some of my poetry here on my blog! Feel free to give me feedback and I hope you like it 🙂
This Is Me Asking For Help
Engulfed by fear of the shadows and dark corners in my mind.
All I want to do is run, run and hide,
never having to see the shadows for what they truly are.
But I try to stand tall, even when I’m shaking
and then I finally realize just how vulnerable I am.
I have exposed all my weaknesses
and now have no way of covering them.
Can I defend myself?
Should I defend myself?
I just want to find one moment to rest
or one hand to hold.
Would that be too much to ask?
Is that the sad truth?
That we must face these shadows alone.
I do not want to be alone, not now nor ever.
I keep reaching out for that one hand
that will hold fast to mine and never let go.
Sometimes I feel finger tips.
